KFC was warned about switching UK delivery contractor, union says
GMB union says it expressed doubts about DHL’s ability to run operation from single warehouse
The fast food chain KFC was warned it would face delivery problems months ago, it has been claimed, as the company tries to grapple with a worsening chicken supply crisis that has forced most of its outlets to remain closed.
Some 420 KFC stores are currently shut after the company switched deliveries to a cheaper service. An updated list showed that the number of open outlets rose to 480 by 1pm on Tuesday after dropping to just 254 an hour before. And for a second day KFC gave no indication of when operations would be back to normal.
