KFC Suffers Mass Closures Over Lack of ChickenFebruary 19, 2018 4:30pm

The chicken has crossed the road, "just not to our restaurants," explains KFC UK in a tweet addressing its weird problem: no chicken. USA Today reports about 900 of the chain's roughly 21,500 locations are in the UK, and only 300 of them were open Monday morning due a chicken supply issue.

Per the tweet, the hiccup is on the delivery end, with the chain explaining it has "brought a new delivery partner onboard, but they've had a couple of teething problems."

KFC didn't name the delivery partner, but CNBC reports it's DHL, which released a statement that cited "operational issues." The BBC reports Bidvest had handled delivery up until last Tuesday.

KFC addicts in the US can breathe easy; the issues are local to the UK.
