Not too long now...
KFC, Pizza Hut, Carl's Jr. and Taco Bell would reopen more than 200 stores nationwide - but customers would not be allowed inside stores.
Following the move to Covid-19 alert level 3 at 11.59pm next Monday, Restaurant Brands would be phasing in the opening of stores throughout New Zealand.
Kiwis could get their KFC and Carl's Jr fill via the drive-thru and contactless delivery. Pizza Hut meals could only be made through contactless delivery.
KFC customers would only be able to select meals from a smaller-than-usual menu due to the limited number of staff required in kitchens.
However, their most popular menu items would be available.
