Their chicken was previously delivered by specialist food distribution group Bidvest.

KFC’s website shows that 575 of the fast-food chain’s 900 outlets in the UK and the Republic of Ireland were shut as of 9pm on Monday, February 19.

“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,” they added.
