Have you ever wondered what would happen to Chicken Restaurants if they ever ran out of Chicken!!!!

Well the answer is plain; those establishments would probably have to close!!  Such is the case in the United Kingdom when The Suppliers of Kentucky Fried Chicken were unable to deliver any Chicken.

There are roughly 900 KFC restaurants in the United Kingdom and more than 800 of them had to closed around mid-day on Monday because of a lack of chickens.

KFC, which is owned by Taco Bell and Pizza Hut parent Yum! (YUM), said the chicken shortage had been caused by a “couple of teething problems” with its new delivery partner, DHL (DPW).

Statement from KFC:

“We won’t compromise on quality, so no deliveries has meant some of our restaurants are closed, and others are operating a limited menu, or shortened hours,” KFC said in a statement.


Franchisees operate 95% of KFC’s outlets in the U.K. The company said in a statement that it would pay its staff as normal, and it was encouraging franchisees to do the same.

KFC said it is too early to say how long it would take to restore normal service.
