Switching to KFG or KFR is out of the question?

Re: KFC have run out of chicken

My wife and I were in the KFC next to Geneva main station yesterday.
Very busy - but they get their chicken from the Netherlands.
Probably comes via KLM - which explains the price.

Still tasted good

Re: KFC have run out of chicken

Good to see the real reason for this mess.

Quote:
The GMB union said it had tried to warn KFC that switching from Bidvest to DHL was a mistake. The change led to 255 job losses and the closure of a Bidvest depot, said Mick Rix, GMB national officer.

He said: "Bidvest are specialists - a food distribution firm with years of experience. DHL are scratching around for any work they can get, and undercut them.

"KFC are left with hundreds of restaurants closed while DHL try and run the whole operation out of one distribution centre. Three weeks ago, KFC knew they had made a terrible mistake, but by then it was too late."

Re: KFC have run out of chicken

And even more stores closed today.

Mind you, they're not the only ones having supply problems. McD's can't keep up with demand for their new Grand Macs.

Re: KFC have run out of chicken

Evidently some idiots have been calling the police about KFC not having enough chicken.

They should be roasted over a slow fire.

I'll go with Obelix on this one.

But how about "bring your own chicken"?

Where did you get that idea from??? I have not seen a single prerelease that confirm this, they all just mention the word chicken, but no definition has been provided.
