Last week, KFC switched the business partner, and now DHL delivers chicken meat to the country's restaurants. The deficit of chicken began just after the change of supplier, KFC said.

In the UK, there are about 900 KFC restaurants, of which about 80% work on a franchise. Now only 279 of them continue their work.
