For some definition of "chicken". Seriously, I've never been able to figure out how they manage to get back in every damn piece.

Previous supplier Bidvest shut down distribution centre with loss of 250 jobs. There's been some criticism about the former logistics operator (lateness, hygiene—unverified at the moment i.e. via Twitter) but they can't be accused of closing down 80% of one company's operations (okay, including franchises).

Interestingly, the company used to be called officially "Kentucky Fried Chicken", implying that the product was made from identifiably chickeny bits, quality aside.

Then they changed it to the initials "KFC". So the letter "C" could presumably stand for any other animal named starting with a "c". For example, when they opened a store in my granny's suburb back in the day, the local cat lady who lived next door complained that all her feline friends started to disappear. Meanwhile that KFC would have regular specials of buckets with "more drumsticks, fewer wings".

Meanwhile in South America, there's capybara, a large and meaty rodent, and cavy, also known as guinea pig. And in the Middle East there's camel. And so on.

So yeah. KF-something-starting-with-C.

</silly>

WKRP is "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly". I looked it up.

I have a rather stricter definition of avian "flight" than some... even argued it here re: chickens years ago.

So I have to think even wild turkeys would have a problem from a helo a couple hundred feet up.

A break from KFC might be good for some people's health except they'll probably go to McDonalds instead.

As usual in the corporate world, some KFC exec who thought up stole this idea will be getting an even larger bonus this year while the hapless peons who got stuck with implementing it will be punished.

The guy who actually thought it up, had a correct implementation plan, and had it stolen and messed up by the boss will be trying to lie low.

I heard there was also a crash on the M6 that added to the issues. Oh and there are software issues.... Oh and it was on a Monday with rush hour traffic ... Oh and it was raining....

Does show how our central JIT distribution model leaves organisations very vulnerable.

Reminds me of

"All the planning charts and demolition orders have been on display in your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for fifty of your Earth years, so youíve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and itís far too late to start making a fuss about it now.í

Having spent a number of years in logistics, I can tell you that there are a lot of "incumbents" breathing easy for the coming RFQ season. "Well, yeah, that guy's 30% cheaper but remember what happened to KFC?"

Heads should roll at KFC. This "it's all the new supplier's fault" is nonsense. I've been involved in dozens of transitions - having won new business and having lost old reliable accounts, and the successful ones have an implementation and transition team plotting the changes for six months to a year in advance.

They were warned. You get what you pay for and they bought the Powerpoint presentation and didn't bother to check that DHL actually had those bits of software and those food-grade facilities, just trusted in their pedigree.

DHL will be sued, but they've got deep pockets so the financial hit won't be massive; the public relations hit will be, though. (DHL is a bugaboo to the old guard capitalists in the industry. They were the Deutsche Post, and the German government decided to let them use their subsidized profits to go out in the field and buy up forwarding and logistics companies.)

DHL tried a few years back to go head-to-head with UPS and FedEx in the USA. It did not go well for them.

ETA: Oh, and about "Heads will roll at KFC." That's correct. But as usual, it'll be the wrong heads.

Problem I've seen in regards to this is that many times the in-house experts are the ones that will have been ignored and the ones that will have been let go as part of the "cost savings"! It's the old "familiarity breeds contempt" syndrome in business. In-house criticisms are waved aside as "they always complain" or "they always say it won't work" but shiny Mr Business-Consultant's words are gospel. So the only heads that could roll are at the very senior levels and guess what - they won't be rolling their own heads.

I had to return a fire tablet to Amazon a couple of weeks back. My little village has a Post Office, a Hermes collection point and an Amazon Logistics collection point. So which did they give me a return slip for (with no information)? Some forth option I'd never heard of (MyParcel I think?) that supposedly had a place eight miles away that I couldn't find with the help of Google Maps, plan B was another four miles or so and proved to be a little newsagent in the middle of a combined housing estate/industrial park/dystopian wasteland.

When life gives you lemons....

Kudos for them for turning this around. The ad agency probably worried like hell about making the presentation then breathed a massive sigh of relief when KFC/Yum! bought into it. Whomever runs KFC in the UK, I like them. They called a spade a spade and threw DHL (disclaimer, my lifelong enemies in the supply chain and distribution business) under one bus, two trains, and a refrigerated delivery van. Then, rather than hiding behind that blame, they haven't mentioned DHL again and are taking the responsibility and a fair amount of ridicule on their own shoulders.

Someone sold the board on the absurdity. I mean, I made the joke back during the bird flu outbreak in Hong Kong when KFC there had signs up that they would be operating on a limited menu. "Maybe call it Kentucky Fried Other Stuff? When your corporate life is chicken you can't really operate without chicken." They saw how painfully funny this is and decided to laugh with the others, at themselves.
