KFC begins partial reopening

KFC has reopened 11 of its branches across the UK for takeaways only.

The news comes three weeks after the chicken chain closed all 900 restaurants and stopped deliveries in order to protect the well being and safety of staff and customers in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Sites open include Portsmouth, Manchester, and Glasgow although they are working on skeleton staff and serving a limited menu. Social distancing guidelines are being adhered to with designated working zones two meters apart marked out by tape on the floor.

Since being back open, KFC has donated 3,000 free meals via Deliveroo to NHS workers and has committed to provide a further 100 meals from each branch every week to those working on the frontline.

KFC has said it will open more sites as long as it is safe to do so and if staff want to return to work.
