Press Release


May 29, 2020

May 29,2020, Johannesburg, South Africa - In just a few days’ time, over 900 KFC restaurants will reopen, reuniting South Africans with their favorite fried chicken in the
safest way possible.  After a few weeks of delivery only, our contactless drive thru and take away service will reopen on 1 June 2020. We are also extremely excited to announce that during the month of June we are piloting an all new, carefully managed Curbside collection service in over 100 restaurants, with the intention to expand this service rapidly.

Akhona Qengqe, Chief People Officer at KFC Africa says: “After weeks in lockdown, many of you will be craving a bucket of our delicious secret recipe chicken. I am thrilled to say that we are ready and geared up to safely serve you and your family your favorite KFC meal, via contactless drive thru, take away and Curbside collection. This will no doubt bring joy to many South Africans across the country.”

As always, the well being of our teams, partners and customers remains our highest priority. In addition to our regular stringent hygiene standards that our restaurant teams already follow, we have implemented increased safety measures to ensure a safe working environment for everyone.These safety measures are aligned – and often go over and above – the
government regulations and guidelines. For a full list of measures we are taking, click here.

“Our promise is to ensure our restaurants are serving up only the best food, in the safest way possible. That is why all our team members are trained on the increased safety measures, hygiene standards and social distancing measures we have put in place.”

Curbside collection

We also want to ensure we offer our guests new ways to order and enjoy KFC. That is why we are piloting KFC Curbside collection. What is the all new KFC Curbside collection? It’s a super simple way to order KFC online and have it brought to your car. Simply download the KFC App and select your preferred restaurant based on your location, select Curbside collection
and place your order. Confirm your car details, make payment and you are ready to go. Finally, drive to your selected KFC restaurant, choose the allocated Curbside parking bay, check-in on the App and a KFC team member will delivery your order to your car - safely and conveniently.

Finally, we believe in serving only the best fresh ingredients. Thus, from the 1st – 8th June, we will be offering a limited menu. This will include many fan favorites including our
world-famous buckets, Zinger wings and Streetwise classic. We promise that our full menu is just around the corner.

We cannot wait to welcome you back to our restaurants. You can take a look at our current menu here.
