Kentucky Fried Chicken, better known as KFC has announced that they will start delivery buckets of chicken to two U.S. cities, this will be a first for any chicken chain to start doing home deliveries.
Starting Thursday, people in Los Angeles and San Francisco will be able to have food delivered. KFC said it expects to expand the delivery service into Houston by the end of this year. More cities may come later.
KFC is working with online delivery company DoorDash to deliver its chicken, biscuits and coleslaw. Customers will have to make orders through DoorDash’s app or website.
The chicken won’t come cheap: There’s a delivery fee between $4.99 and $6.99, depending on a customer’s location, and prices of some items will be higher than those in the restaurants. Its value meals, however, such as its eight-piece $20 Family Fill Up will stay the same price. All menu items at the restaurant will be available to order, the companies said.
KFC expects 100 restaurants to offer delivery before it decides to expand the service. There are more than 4,300 U.S. KFC restaurants. While it’s a first for KFC in the U.S., it’s common to see KFC being delivered in China, Egypt, Malaysia and other countries around the world.
