KFC is reopening 500 of its stores by the end of the week, the chain has confirmed.
By Friday, around half of the chain’s branches will have reopened their doors, with customers able to order for delivery from a limited menu.
It comes after the fast-food chain took the decision to close its restaurants following the UK government’s introduction of lockdown measures back in March.
Speaking about the decision to reopen hundreds of stores, Paula MacKenzie, general manager at KFC for the UK and Ireland, said: “500 restaurants reopening is a huge milestone.
“It’s credit to the hard work of all of our amazing teams in restaurant and we wanted to celebrate the moment.
“We’ve loved seeing the nation’s homemade efforts whilst we’ve been away, so including a few of them in our new ad is the perfect tribute.
“Some of the creations looked incredible, some less so… now that we’re back on delivery, probably best we take it from here!”
