KFC, Pizza Hut shut down in Nepal following a dispute over long working hours after quakes

The restaurant has opened their first branches in the country in 2010, generating long queues of locals desirous to test their cuisine.

Four of KFC and Pizza Hut restaurant in Nepal has been shut down following a dispute between the management and staff over long working hours after quakes.

The only international fast-food chain present in the country is operated by Devyani International.

According to the sources, the restaurants have been closed in Kathmandu since May 13 after a scuffle broke out between workers and management.

"We have closed down indefinitely as we could not operate in such an environment," said Rohit Kohli, the company's Kathmandu-based director.

There has been a long dispute between the workers and the management over the working hours.

The workers were asking for reducing the working hours, which the management refused to consider, turning out to be a dispute between the two. Though, the restaurants were shutdown in the wake of the devastating earthquakes, there was no relation between the two incidents.

The management has accused the staff of attacking one of the managers of the restaurant.

The restaurant has opened their first branches in the country in 2010, generating long queues of locals desirous to test their cuisine.

In 2012, the restaurants were shut down temporarily for about a month, saying staff had attacked and threatened to its branch managers over a labour dispute.
