Several branches across the UK have closed after a hiccup with deliveries
The chicken chain is still looking into how many venues are affected but customers have reported multiple closures across the UK, including Newcastle, Suffolk, Surrey and Berkshire.
There are over 800 KFC branches in the UK.
Fans of the fried chicken have been sharing their disappointment on Twitter.
One said: “Drove to two separate @KFC_UKI to find one had no chicken and one was closed. What even is my luck. Just want some fried chicken”.

Another said: “As if kfc is closed coz they’ve run out of chicken.”
A third added: “KFC in both Cheshire Oakes and Chester Greyhound Park are closed because… they’re out of chicken.”
A KFC spokesperson said: “We deliver fresh chicken to our restaurants, but we’re having a few hiccups with our delivery system at the moment.
“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!”
Its not the first time that a chain has been in hot water over deliveries.
