Popular fast-food outlets across Northampton have shut up shop for the day after failing to receive a chicken delivery.
A number of KFC restaurants in the town have remained shut since Saturday (February 17), with bosses citing a 'delivery hiccup' as the cause.
The company says it is now investigating how many stores have been affected.
KFC has confirmed that Northampton Riverside Retail Park was back up-and-running last night as of 9.18pm, but it is understood a number of town centre restaurants are still shut.
- Nene Park, Sixfields
- B&Q Retail Park, Towcester Road
- Harborough Road, Kingsthorpe
- NotreDame Mews, Abington Street
In a statement, a KFC spokesman said: "We've brought a new delivery partner onboard, but they've had teething problems - getting fresh chicken out to 900 restaurants across the country is pretty complex.
"We won't compromise on quality, so no deliveries has meant some of our restaurants are closed, and others are operating a limited menu, or shortened hours.
"We know that this might have inconvenienced some of you over the last few days, and disappointed you when you wanted your fried chicken fix - we’re really sorry about that."
