Uber today announced that its food delivery service, UberEATS, has partnered with fast-food franchise Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC). Johannesburg users will be able to order the menu items through the UberEATS app from 7 June.
At launch, only select branches in Fourways, Randburg, Sandton, and Bryanston will be available, with more options added soon. The service will be available between 7am and 10pm daily.
“We are thrilled for UberEATS to be partnering with KFC, giving eaters the opportunity to order their favourite meal at the touch of a button,” says the general manager of UberEATS South Africa, Nic Robertson, in a press release.
“KFC is one of the most loved brands in South Africa, and we are so excited that UberEATS can help bring eaters the KFC meals they’ve so desperately craved.”
The service will soon expand to Cape Town, though a definite time frame has not been stated.
