Anecdote for the Day

From an article from news.com:
On Friday, the fast food chain [Kentucky Fried Chicken, now named KFC] will be marking its 50 years in Australia by giving away free chicken in retro buckets at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal.

They’ll be hoping to not run out of chicken, the fate that befell their stores in the UK and Ireland earlier this year.

The embarrassing fail afflicted 900 stores for weeks when KFC switched from its usual logistics supplier to another venue.

It wasn’t just chicken; gravy was also in short supply.

It took almost a month to get things back to normal which only occurred once the contract was partially switched back to the old supplier whose secret recipe for getting drumsticks to store was put in motion.

The firm later took out ads in the UK press apologising for the furore. Cheekily, they rearranged the KFC logo to read “FCK”.
