KFC Spreads its Wings with New Flying Drone Delivery Service

Have you ever been hungover, ordered an ungodly amount of the dirty bird, only to be judged by the food delivery guy as he hands over the greasy bag? Do you ever feel ashamed or judged for greeting them at the door in your pyjamas at 2pm? If you answered yes, we have some finger-lickn’ good news. KFC has announced they will offer flying drones to drop off orders at your doorstep so you can gorge yourself silly as quick as possible. Welcome to the future, piglets.

The chicken-based fast food chain has partnered with Wing in Queensland, providing Australia’s first ever on-demand drone delivery service. Drone orders will be available to small households and workplaces in South East Queensland suburbs of Kingston, Logan Central, Slacks, Under, and Woodridge. In the future, the service will gradually expand to other nearby locations.

Chief Marketing Officer of KFC Australia Kristi Woolrych said via a press release, “Drone delivery is an amazing technology and something we see becoming more accessible in the future, so we’re thrilled to have partnered with Wing. We’re looking to target customers that want convenience, and the capabilities of this service truly showcase the future of delivery.”

She added, “Given the last 18 months, Australians have relied on delivery more and more, so it’s great to be making life easier for fans who want to get their hands on KFC in a flash. You know the future truly is here when you can get hot, fresh Kentucky Fried Chicken delivered by a drone from the click of a few buttons!”

Wings City Manager in Queensland Dave Oijako-Pettit expressed his excitement over the new partnership, noting how this project will take food delivery to new heights: “East Queensland Wing made more than 100,000 deliveries to the Logan community in 2021, with many customers finding on-demand drone delivery especially useful as they stayed home and relied on our contactless service to deliver the things they needed.”

At this stage, the KFC drones can only carry up to 1.5 kilograms, so don’t expect to make large orders for your next fried social function.
