KFC Launches On-Demand Delivery

Colonel Sanders wants to bring the chicken to you.

Kentucky Fried Chicken is now available for delivery. KFC announced Thursday that the national chain started delivering from its restaurants in the San Francisco Bay area, Los Angeles and Orange County.

The Associated Press reports that KFC expects to expand the delivery service into Houston by the end of this year, with more cities possibly added later.

All menu items at restaurants will be available for delivery, although some prices will be higher. KFC’s value meals, however, will stay the same price as in the restaurant. A delivery fee of $4.99 to $6.99 will also apply, depending on a customer’s location.

KFC is partnering with online delivery company DoorDash, which also works with Taco Bell, to offer the new service. Yum Brands owns both KFC and Taco Bell.

Customers who want Colonel Sanders to come to them will have to place their orders via DoorDash’s website or app, which is available for mobile devices that run on an iOS or Android operating system.

Although delivered KFC is new to the United States, it’s commonplace in other countries. The AP reports that Yum Brands chief executive Greg Creed said at a May conference with analysts that KFC’s delivery business usually grows faster than its main business:

“The great thing about buckets of chicken … it holds its temperature incredibly well.”
