KFC is still struggling with supply problems nearly two months after a switch to new logistics providers forced it to close nearly all its restaurants.
The chain is still operating a limited menu in many of its 750 outlets across the UK, despite switching back to its original logistics provider Bidvest for 350 of its branches in the north of the country.
New supplier DHL, which operates out of a central depot in Rugby, Warwickshire, has resolved some teething problems but others remain, and a spokesman for KFC said: “disruption to some restaurants is unfortunately continuing.”
The business was “through the worst of it”, the spokesman said, but “a significant number of restaurants are still serving a limited menu”.
The switchover in February was plagued with problems including a lack of specialist delivery drivers, IT issues, and the failure of DHL to secure appropriate licenses from the council.
