“A chicken restaurant without any chicken. It’s not ideal.

“Huge apologies to our customers, especially those who travelled out of their way to find we were closed.

“And endless thanks to our KFC team members and our franchise partners for working tirelessly to improve the situation.

“It’s been a hell of a week, but we’re making progress, and everyday more and more fresh chicken is being delivered to our restaurant.

“Thank you for bearing with us.”
