The Journal understands Exmouth’s KFC restaurant is set to re-open today (Wednesday, February 21) after a national problem with deliveries kept the Imperial Road restaurant closed.
Exmouth’s KFC restaurant is set to re-open at noon today (Wednesday, February 21) after finally getting its devilvery.
The Imperial Road restaurant was temporarily closed this week after delivery problems affected 900 of its outlets across the UK.
The fast food giant blamed ‘teething problems’ with a new delivery partner for the disruption nationwide.
In many stores in around the country, it was reported KFC had run out of chicken, however, in Exmouth, the Journal understands this was not the case.
A source said earlier this week that the branch in Imperial Road had chicken, but was short on other stock, meaning it could not open.
A notice to customers placed in the window apologised for any inconvenience and said: “We deliver our chicken fresh into our restaurants, but we’ve had a few hiccups with the delivery today.
“We wouldn’t want to open without offering our full menu, but we’ll be back at the fryers as soon as we can.”
A KFC spokesperson said: “We anticipate the number of closures will reduce today and over the coming days as our teams work flat out all hours to clear the backlog. Each day more deliveries are being made, however, we expect the disruption to some restaurants to continue over the remainder of the week, meaning some will be closed and others operating with a reduced menu or shortened hours.”
