KFC Might Run Out of Chicken by Saturday

According to the AP, KFC denies that there were any riots over grilled chicken yesterday. More importantly they say “the Manhattan restaurant on East 42nd Street plans to begin honoring the coupons again [today] after it resupplies the kitchen.”  But you may not want to sit on that coupon too long.  An anonymous source who claims to supply KFC with chicken has told Business Insider that because of this promotion KFC may run out of product by this weekend:

“A franchisee today told me KFC is projected to strip their entire supply chain of bird by Saturday. I am not making that up. They are scrambling to source more chicken before Sunday the 5th. By Sunday, because its Mothers Day, one of their busiest days of the year. Its possible they could be out of chicken on Mothers Day.”

This thing just keeps getting better and better.


  • The coupon is not good on mother’s day, so they don’t have to worry about that for sunday

  • I wonder if you could JIT the chicken supply chain.

  • If my children served my wife KFC on Mother’s Day, she would immediately place a call to our attorney and write them out of her will.

  • Wait, wait, Mother’s Day is the busiest day of the year for KFC? Or one of? Does anyone else see something wrong with this picture? I mean, I get it, Mom doesn’t cook on Mother’s Day, great, but… even so… doesn’t she at least deserve table service? Applebee’s, Olive Garden, TGI Friday’s? (My mom likes these places btw.) No, seriously though. Chili’s? Ruby Tuesday’s?

  • hahahhahaahahahah mothers day one of their busiest days of the year ahahhahahahaha

  • Surely Valentines Day must be busier.

  • White Castle is busiest on all holidays. taco Bell is a close second.

  • White Castle and Taco Bell? Sounds like a lot of people got the bad case of munchies. Way to blaze up on Mom’s day. ;-P

  • i once went to a friends house for thanksgiving and his family is to big so they always order boston market…it wasnt half bad!!!! could have almost passed off for home cooking if not in the containers…but KFC!
