Hattip to my bride.
This is not an April Fool’s story:
New Zealand Post has announced its couriers will home-deliver KFC fast food, in a trial that could provide a recipe for success as letter volumes continue to dwindle.
Under a pilot scheme that started this week in the North Island town of Tauranga, KFC customers can order online and have their food delivered by NZ Post drivers.
KFC operator Restaurant Brands NZ said that while it knew how to produce food, it had no experience in logistics, making the postal service a natural fit.
“NZ Post has an extensive delivery distribution network around New Zealand, and KFC is available in most towns nationwide,” chief executive Ian Letele said.
“With the support of NZ Post, we hope to service the home delivery needs of many more KFC customers throughout New Zealand.”
Go here to read the rest. Perhaps Don the Kiwi can give us any additional info he has about this. Considering the speed and efficiency of our own snail mail, I suspect any chicken they were delivering would have morphed into zombie chicken by the time it was delivered.
