KFC changed distributors from a specialist to a general delivery, and ran out of chicken. The specialist had to reduce their workforce because they lost the contract, and the general freight is trying to find a way to save their name.

This is a tale told over and over throughout the world. What on paper should have been a good deal turns out to leave your freezers bare. I don't know how it is in the UK, but in the US, many restaurants of this nature use Just In Time delivery schedules. There's no leeway at all.

The Colonel at a press event in Japan. I think there's some spread to the KFC brand.

Oh please this is the UK we are talking about unless there is a soccer game involved there will be no riots

At worst there will be some disapproving clicks of the tongues
and longer lines at Nandos which is better chicken anyways

chicken crisis 2018! see what happens when you don't get all your chickens in a roll! regardless, hopefully this will be resolved shortly and people in the UK can return to enjoying that chicken goodness. there's always the option to try vegan for a bit, use up everything but the chicken, even if that is what keeps KFC afloat, nothing wrong with mash potatoes, wedges and cake for awhile. it'd be a nightmare if they ran out of chicken in Japan, means they might have to go somewhere for their chicken enjoyment, oh the humanity!

not only that, but I will assume it is a cheap and effective way of feeding a family.

those people effect our youth because of laziness, not just some treat we will have once or twice a month. They wont tell you to think like that, only to make you go back for more, and to keep those bad thoughts of health risks at a minimum.

Its finger licking good

good thing I don't eat chicken... it gives me endless sticky poop that takes 2 and a half rolls of toilet paper to clean and takes a whole hour to do so.
