KFC is looking at rolling out home delivery across New Zealand, but customers will have to wait until the middle of next year.
Hamilton will be the first city to be able to get fried chicken delivered to home when a trial delivery service begins in February.
Following a successful trial, home delivery will then be rolled out to between a third and a half of KFC stores across New Zealand, Restaurant Brands said.
KFC previously offered a delivery service in New Zealand, but this ceased in 2007.
Restaurant Brands CEO Russel Creedy said the time was right for a fresh effort, supported by new technologies and increasing consumer demand for ultra-convenience.
"We expect home delivery will be more successful this time around because of advances in technology.
"Mobile, web-ordering and new payment systems mean that we can offer a better experience for customers, and will make the service more efficient and effective than it was ten years ago," Creedy said.
