The company said they would not lower their expectations on the quality of their chicken, therefore leaving restaurants closed or with a smaller menu.

This policy is about a web page set up by KFC, where customers can find the nearest outlet still open for business.

"Teething problems" were to blame for the chicken shortage according to KFC's twitter profile.

KFC has about 900 United Kingdom restaurants, including a branch in Cross Hands, with more than 80 per cent run by franchisees.

Summer Thomas said: "Ohhhh KFC what the cluck do you think your playing at closing near enough every branch in Bristol because you ran out of chicken!"

The company started closing some restaurants on Saturday but has since reopened about 300 locations as of Monday, with no indication about when the remaining branches will follow.

KFC confirmed yesterday that Northampton Riverside Retail Park was back up-and-running but it is understood a number of town centre restaurants are still shut today (Tuesday).


"We're really sorry for any inconvenience, and we're working to have all our restaurants back up and running as soon as we can!"

KFC has closed hundreds of outlets across the United Kingdom after they ran out of chicken.

KFC has been forced to close hundreds of its British stores because of a shortage of chicken.

"Franchisees will be seeking their own independent advice, but we're encouraging them to adopt this policy too", said the chain.

DHL, KFC's new supplier, said deliveries were "incomplete or delayed" due to "operational issues", but that it was working with KFC to solve the problem.

KFC used to get chicken delivered through a South African-distribution group called Bidvest.
