I can't believe they're in short supply or have no supply of chicken it's a good job I'm not planning on going, I would be very disappointed. Poor colonel will be turning in his grave
Went in one yesterday afternoon, they had no coffee, no sides (only large gravy), and no wet wipes to use after your meal.
Where have you read that DHL almost went into administration due to it? Do you mean the supplier they originally had (bidvest) almost went into administration due to loosing the contract. I can't believe for a second DHL almost did, they deliver for so so so many massive businesses in this country, Poundland, Nisa etc etc.
Probably better for UK health the longer their supply is suspended. Kids and families regularly eating this junk are doing real damage...hope Domino's go through the same soon.

It wasn’t DHL and bidvest didn’t either. They closed a depot with the loss of some jobs.
Maybe someone put all the eggs in one basket?
I remember KFC in late 90’s the actual quality of Meat seemed far better no grissle etc etc and also they were propper sized pieces none of these Budgie sized pieces you get today plus your lucky if they actually give you the right amount of chicken! Get it together KFC !

Let's hope they spend the down time cleaning the restaurants. Every one I've ever been in (not my choice) has been filthy. If none of them ever reopened I would be happy. They are stinking
It’s a joke mate! Apparently they’ve run out of chicken and apparently also fries! What’s going to happen next? Donald trump going to stop wearing fake tan? I’ve had enough

Agreed...Deutsche Post DHL is the world's largest logistics company.

have a look in the bins.
The real shame is that with evryone's local KFC closed, there are no other options for fried chicken or fast food

I guess people might have to prepare a meal from ingredients at home.

Both local KFCs are off the list now.
A shame as by the time this gets sorted the Colonels Club Mighty Bucket for One £4.50 offer might expire (no expiry date on the app so could go at any time)

edit - checked on the website, 11th March.

Is nobody more concerned about how the chickens are farmed and how they are killed, I believe they are killed ignoring our animal welfare laws?
Pot luck if it's chicken anyway, My local served an half cooked battered rat!.

If that's true you should report the entire corporation to trading standards.
Chickens will become extinct before DHL go into administration!
DHL getting in on a well established business operation- we can pay staff less undercut the man going out the door ! Save you this much a year Mr KFC . But hold on when we start we can’t send chicken out of the door !
No sympathy! Only for the people that were laid off to make way for DHL express!
Third world chicken causing first world problems. Disgusting chicken anyway reared in very cruel circumstances.

An egg would be my guess.
Not sure if it came before or after the chicken.

Not that I buy free range organic, but I do buy British chicken unlike KFC who pay about 5p per chicken and import them frozen in container ships from Thailand

now that isn't even remotely true, all their chicken comes from British and Irish farms.

why are you blatently lying?

Source or are you just making it up like you normally do?
I still haven't quite worked out why this whole chaos happened - there are videos of lorry loads of chicken
turning up at the DHL depot so its not a supply problem and surely DHL cannot have a " computer glitch"
that not only causes a complete two week failure to deliver the goods for one single company, but also
one that cannot be rectified by a dozen staff using good old fashioned telephones and computers to
organise distribution ? This the UK - a third of the size of Texas , so it's not as if the DHL delivery
drivers need a satnav.

You made the claim, it's up to you to show they buy from Thailand when all their literature shows as being from British / Irish farms along with being red tractor approved which is purely a UK scheme.

But nice deflection, but that doesn't detract from the fact that you're clearly lying.
