KFC Madness

It seems half the country was trying to take advantage of the free grilled chicken at KFC last night.  We swung by our local KFC on the way to church last night, thinking we’d have a nice family dinner.  I was expecting it to be busy, but wasn’t expecting this:

It was slammed.  You couldn’t even get into the parking lot.  I live in KY, and I have never seen KFC that busy!

And now it seems some stores aren’t honoring the coupon.  Either because they can’t keep up with demand, or because they just don’t want to.  As franchisees, the wording on the coupon allows them that decision.  So if you printed the coupon yesterday, make sure to call your local KFC before heading over to make sure they’re honoring the coupons.

I’m going to wait a few days and let things die down a bit.  Its been obvious to me that the local franchises weren’t prepared for this kind of response.  Several tales recount stories of stores running out of chicken, and others being woefully understaffed.  Since the coupons are valid until the 19th, I think I’ll just wait and have lunch with my friends another day!
