Popular fast food chain “Kentucky Fried Chicken” warns that supply chain issues are disrupting both their food and packaging stocks nationwide.
In a tweet this past Wednesday, the chain restaurant said some of their menu items would not be available temporarily due to what they claim is “some disruption” over the last few weeks. Despite this, the company did not mention which items specifically would be removed in the tweet, nor did they give reason for the disruptions. It said the situation is “not ideal” and that they were “working hard to keep things running smoothly.”
“Please be patient with our teams…they”re doing a brilliant job despite the disruption,” the tweet said. The chain did not say which restaurants were likely to be affected by the disruptions, it should be noted that roughly 80% of the stores in the company are franchised.
Disruptions across the food and delivery industries are currently being caused by a shortage of HGV drivers, with a combination of fewer drivers from EU member states post Brexit and enforced isolation with drivers being contacted by NHS Test and Trace.The Road Haulage Association believes there is a shortfall of about 100,000 lorry drivers across the country. Many customers were upset by the recent developments, replying to the tweet saying there were no cups or lids at locations.
