KFC offers home delivery to some customers

According to the Los Angeles Times, prices of some of the menu will also be more expensive than would normally be found in restaurants. Nevertheless, its popular value meal the eight-piece Family Fill Up will stay the same price of $20 (£13).

KFC has started home delivering its buckets of fried chicken as it tries to expand its brand in the US. The pilot scheme launched and saw customers in Los Angeles and San Francisco able to order Clonel Sanders' meals to their doors.

It will be the first time the fast food chain has delivered in the United States coming after successful projects in China, Egypt, Malaysia and other countries around the world. Bosses hope to expand to other cities if the service proves popular in the coming months.

But delivery will not be free and will cost between $4.99 (£3.28) and $6.99 (£4.60), depending on the customer's location.

According to the Los Angeles Times, prices of some of the menu will also be more expensive than would normally be found in restaurants. Nevertheless, its popular value meal the eight-piece Family Fill Up will stay the same price of $20 (£13).

KFC has partnered with online delivery company DoorDash to deliver the meals and all orders will have to be made though the firm's app or website.

Chipotle, McDonald's Starbucks and Taco Bell, which is run by KFC owner Yum Brands - already deliver to doors in certain cities.

KFC hopes to roll out the delivery service to all 100 of its restaurants in Los Angeles and San Francisco before it decides to expand to cover all 4,300 restaurants in the US.

The Los Angeles Times also reports that CEO Greg Creed said in a conference in May that its delivery business usually grows at a "faster rate" than its main business.

He also adds, "The great thing about buckets of chicken is it holds its temperature incredibly well."
