KFC reopens 700 sites across UK & Ireland

KFC has revealed it has reopened 700 of its restaurants across the UK and Ireland amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The fried chicken chain temporarily closed all of its 950 sites in March as a result of the Covid-19 lockdown.

However, the restaurant confirmed in a social media post that over two thirds of its restaurants have reopened, each serving a limited menu.

The tweet said: “We’ve reached the milestone of 700 restaurants reopened responsibly across the UK and Ireland. As well as delivery and drive-thru, over half of those are now back open for takeaway too.”

In April, KFC trialled the reopening of 11 of its UK sites which would be operating a limited menu and a number of measures to observe social distancing in these restaurants. 

Some measures include placing tape on the floor to create designated working zones two metres apart and operating with just one person per station and fewer team members.
