Hungry customers were keen to get their hands on some chicken as KFC reopened in Clydebank last week.

The chain closed across the UK when lockdown began but it has now started reopening more than 100 drive-thru locations, including in Clydebank and at the Great Western Retail Park, Drumchapel.

However, the store did not publicise their reopening as queues in other parts of the country resulted in traffic police being deployed.

The manager at the Clydebank store told the Post the restaurant has been adapted to ensure staff are adhering to the two-meter distance guidelines and screens have been erected at the drive thru to ensure there is no contact between customers and staff.

Customers can also expect for all food bags to be sealed and food to be handed out to cars on a tray, so there is no skin-to-skin contact.

The Clydebank store will be open each day from 12-9pm for drive-thru and delivery, which can be placed on JustEat and Ubereats.

Steph added that staff are excited to be able to get back to work, but have been urged by management only to do so if they are fit, healthy and showing no symptoms of illness.

She said: “We are going over and above government guidelines to keep staff and customers safe.

“Great Western Road (store) has seen queues tailing around the car park whereas we have been increasingly busy with deliveries.

“Our reduced menu is up on the website and for the moment we will have cut rice, salads, wraps and special burgers.

“This is to minimise the business of each station within the store and allow staff to get used to the changes, we want things to run as smoothly as possible and we feel we are ready to provide a reduced service while managing to keep everyone safe.

“We have made it mandatory for all staff to wear face masks and gloves regardless of their role, and staff will be assigned a designated area in the production line which they are not allowed to leave unless going on their break. Should a staff member need to go between zones, they will shout to all staff so we can ensure we are two meters away as they pass.”

The official KFC twitter announced they will now donate over 10,000 meals to NHS and key workers a week, in partnership with Deliveroo.
