What the cluck? KFC runs out of chicken

A key missing ingredient in the Colonel’s special recipe forced KFC to close nearly all of its 900 restaurants across the UK and Ireland.But it isn’t any of the 11 secret herbs and spices — what’s missing is the chicken!The fast-food empire blamed the cluck-up on a new delivery company that failed to get poultry to most of its stores.“The chicken crossed the road, just not to our restaurants,” KFC’s British branch tweeted Sunday.“We’ve brought a new delivery partner on board, but they’ve had a couple of teething problems — getting fresh chicken out to 900 restaurants across the country is pretty complex!”

The company recently switched from a specialist food-delivery company to German shipping giant DHL, which promised in October to “set a new benchmark for delivering fresh products to KFC in a sustainable way.”Instead, DHL conceded that it has had “operational issues” in recent days, which resulted in “incomplete or delayed” bird deliveries.But the trade union that represents workers at the previous distributor said the fried-chicken titan had switched to an inferior service to save some scratch — an Original Recipe for disaster.“It’s an absolute cock-up. KFC are left with hundreds of restaurants closed while DHL try and run the whole operation out of one distribution center — where conditions are an utter shambles,” said Mick Rix of the General, Municipal, Boilermakers and Allied Trade Union.
