Selected KFC, Burger King & Pret Delivery for public (NHS Freebies/Discounts)

In the News

On Tuesday, KFC announced that it had reopened some of its outlets for delivery only until the pandemic ends.

The chain said it had reopened 11 sites in total including outlets in Manchester, London, Birmingham, Portsmouth, Ipswich and Glasgow.

A spokesperson for KFC said it hopes to expand the scheme if it is deemed safe to do so by authorities

“Over the last week, we’ve reopened 11 of our restaurants in the UK,” the spokesperson added.

“They’re open for delivery only and are serving a limited menu, operated by fewer team members with new procedures in place to help ensure we’re following social distancing guidelines.

“There’s still a need for affordable, accessible food at this time – so we want to do our part.”

All staff working at the reopened restaurants will follow strict social-distancing and hygiene regimes, KFC said.

Full list of reopened KFC outlets:

Stockport - Heaton Chapel

Tamworth

Birmingham - New Oscott

Manchester - Hulme

Portsmouth

Aldershot, Hampshire

Ipswich - Cardinal Park

Glasgow - Pollokshaws Road

Glasgow - Great Western Retail Park

Enfield - Coliseum Retail Park

Manchester - Deansgate

Staff at Burger King will wear masks and gloves and will be trained in running delivery-only kitchens hygienically, a spokesperson for the chain said.

There will be stringent cleaning measures, and staff will get social distancing training.

Is Burger King offering discounts to NHS staff during lockdown?

Burger King said it will donate 1,000 meals per week to staff working at NHS hospitals near to the sites that have reopened.

“We want to demonstrate how appreciative everyone at Burger King UK is of [NHS staff] efforts in these unprecedented times,” Ms Evans added.

Pret a Manger temporarily closed all it stores of 21 March ahead of the UK’s nationwide lockdown in a bid to help stop the spread of Covid-19.

The chain today announced that it has reopened 10 stores near to hospitals in London for delivery and takeaway.

Pret CEO Pano Christou said in a statement: “I wanted to thank you for sticking with us through this crisis and while we have been closed.

We are incredibly grateful that 160 Team Members have volunteered to help reopen 10 shops in London, located close to hospitals.”

He added: “These shops will open tomorrow for takeaway and delivery only, offering a reduced range of Pret favourites, as well as a selection of essentials like milk, bread and butter.”

Mr Christou said that the chain would be offering a 50 per cent discount to NHS workers until the end of April.

I think businesses got not enough help to stay closed. Some can not afford it and they open...Fair enough

AgnesFaludi I’ve read the same especially in USA, they’ve kept fast food places open so that key workers have somewhere to eat. Lots in this country relied on McDs as they open very early. Really don’t understand why MCD, KFC etc closed as they do deliveries as already said

ivenailedit deliveries and drive true could run, because there is social distance there.

They‘re also giving freebies to NHS staff too chelseaturpin. Keep receiving emails from other fast food companies stating that they’re giving free food to the NHS. Don’t think other key workers are mentioned, a shame I know

chelseaturpin a family member is a key worker, not NHS & I’m really worried about safety. NHS inc doctors are most deserving as they are in direct contact with the virus, but all key workers - carers, retail workers, delivery drivers, bus drivers, cleaners etc etc are likely to catch it, as are exposed daily to people who might have it
