SOUTHAMPTON residents can enjoy KFC from the comfort of their own homes.

It comes as the fast-food chain plans to reopen 100 of its restaurants by Monday, May 4.

The KFC restaurant in Above Bar Street is now offering delivery only meals available via Deliveroo, Just Eat, or Uber Eats.

Renowned for its buckets of fried chicken it will be offering a limited menu so staff can maintain social distancing.

Other restaurants that have reopened on the South Coast are in Winborne Road, Bournemouth and Ashley Road, Poole.

A statement from KFC reads: "Update from The Colonel, by Monday, May 4 we'll have reopened 100 of our restaurants in the UK for delivery.

"We're reopening our restaurants in a responsible way, with stringent processes and hygiene measures in place. We'll be serving a limited menu to help the smaller kitchen teams maintain social distancing.

"Opening these restaurants will mean that we can continue donating food to NHS and key workers - we'll be delivering 10,000 meals a week from these restaurants in partnership with Deliveroo.

"There's a list of our restaurants that are open for delivery with our partners at Deliveroo, Just Eat, or Uber Eats below. If you're not near one of the lucky hundred, never fear - we're working hard to reopen more over the coming weeks, so we'll keep you posted."

A full list of reopened restaurants is published on the KFC website.
