LOUISVILLE, Ky. and SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Kentucky Fried Chicken and DoorDash are excited to announce the world's best fried chicken is available for on-demand delivery. Customers are now just a few clicks, swipes and taps away from a valuable, whole meal replacement from KFC delivered straight to their door by DoorDash. DoorDash will initially deliver from KFC restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles and Orange County, with delivery expanding to other cities in the coming months.
The Colonel believed that families deserve a break from the kitchen and that meal replacements should be plentiful and valuable when made "the hard way" by KFC cooks. Now busy families can enjoy the world's best chicken, which is hand prepared in-store every day, without having to leave the comfort of home. Via DoorDash, KFC is offering delivery of complete meal replacements, such as the $20 Family Fill Up which comes with 8 pieces of chicken, 2 large mashed potatoes and gravy, 1 large coleslaw and 4 biscuits; making dinner time for a family of four even easier.
"Decades ago, people traveled from miles around to visit Colonel Sanders' original Corbin, KY restaurant to taste his now world famous Original Recipe Chicken. Through our partnership with DoorDash, customers will now be able to order an affordable meal combination like the $20 Family Fill Up or individual $5 Fill-Up, or choose from the menu a la carte style," says KFC US chief information officer, Chris Caldwell. "When we began exploring delivery options for KFC, we quickly found DoorDash was the right choice. Both companies believe the customer comes first and DoorDash's commitment to customer experience made them the best partner for us to get the world's best fried chicken directly to our customers' doors."
Today's partnership with KFC highlights DoorDash's growing momentum leading the on-demand delivery space as it continues to work with top-tier brands and expand into more cities across the country. Coming on the heels of DoorDash's successful test and partnership with Taco Bell this summer, KFC marks the second YUM! Brands restaurant to power their delivery offerings with DoorDash, further strengthening the relationship between the two companies.
"Just two years ago, DoorDash was in one market and three cities. Today we're in 18 markets, more than 250 cities, and forging strategic partnerships with national brands like KFC," said Tony Xu, CEO and Co-founder of DoorDash. "Thanks to our data-powered routing algorithm and our innovative machine learning technology, we're proud to be bringing fast, simple and affordable on-demand delivery of people's favorite food to every corner of the country."
"KFC is a perfect partner for our business," said Prahar Shah, Head of Business Development for DoorDash. "Their focus on fast, convenient and valuable family meals aligns perfectly with DoorDash's vision for easy and delightful delivery. We're proud that our partnership with YUM! Brands continues to expand and excited to be bringing an incredible variety of food -- from tacos to chicken and more -- directly to people's doors."
