The Colonel says 'FCK'

Don't know if this made USA news, but KFC in UK started closing outlets shortly after it changed to a new delivery firm on 14 February, Four days later more than two-thirds of them were closed..

They put a series of apologetic adverts in newspapers, including this one:

From The Guardian
The “new delivery partner”, otherwise known as the behemoth DHL, took over the KFC logistics contract on Valentine’s Day, alongside Quick Service Logistics (QSL), which has supplied KFC in Europe since 2011. Problems began almost immediately. By 16 February, KFC had started to shut down locations after managers complained of delays to deliveries and by 18 February only 266 of 900 restaurants in the UK were open.

Speaking from the home of KFC and its corporate umbrella, Yum brands, I can't say Britain is the worse for having less of that nasty industrial stuff. :twisted:

But good for them for the self-deprecating, politically incorrect, ad.
