KFC apologizes for chicken shortage with hidden message

The news was seemingly just as surprising to customers, as it was to the company - how can KFC possibly run out of chicken?

To apologize to customers and own up to their mistake, the chain ran a hilarious ad in the United Kingdom newspapers The Sun and Metro today.

The Calgary restaurant is even running ads on social media in areas of the United Kingdom most affected by the fried chicken shortage.

As many as 800 out of about 900 KFC locations were closed on Monday due to the logistical snafu. It's not ideal. Huge apologies to our customers, especially those who traveled out of their way to find we were closed.

"We won't compromise on quality, so no deliveries has meant some of our restaurants are closed and others are operating a limited menu, or shortened hours".

According to Campaign, 700 of the 900 United Kingdom restaurants had reopened as of yesterday.

Thankfully for the restaurant's hungry fans, the chicken shortage seems to be winding down.

A spokesman for the company said: "Due to operational issues a number of deliveries in recent days have been incomplete or delayed".

Staff said on Sunday morning that they didn't yet know if they would be able to open. "I think they're going to have more people wanting to go to KFC than less.as a result of this".

Franchisees operate 95% of KFC's outlets in the country.
