KFC has started trialling delivery of their fried chicken a different way in South East Queensland: by taking it to the skies via drone. Yes, you heard that correctly. We had to check and see if it was legit too. The fast-food chain is testing out the altitude in Kingston, Logan Central, Slacks Creek, Underwood and Woodridge, bringing a service like no other that quite literally drops from above. It’s the newest way to get fried chicken delivered to your door.
It’s all happening via the Wing delivery app, alongside KFC joining forces with an on-demand drone service that pilots the chicken, chippies, burgers and more. The drone, which can hold up to 1.5kg, can travel over 110 kilometres per hour. So like, who needs roads anyway? Or cars for that matter.
The flying fried chicken carrier picks the order up from the KFC store, flies it to the delivery location and lowers the food on a tether, for an automatic release. Pretty neat, I must say. We’re definitely living in the year 2022, that’s for sure. What’s next? Do we want to know? I’m not even sure anymore.
Although the KFC drone deliveries are only available if you live in Kingston, Logan Central, Slacks Creek, Underwood and Woodridge, they’re looking to expand to more nearby spots in the future. So this special service could very well hit Melbourne soon.
If you’re going to Queensland anytime soon, you can order your KFC via drone on the Wing delivery app.
