KFC, Burger King and Pret A Manger have started taking orders for deliveries just three weeks after the Government enforced its lockdown measures. .
According to The Mirror, KFC has opened two of its branches in Manchester with the two stores be delivering free meals for NHS workers.
A KFC spokesperson said: “Over the last week, we’ve reopened 11 of our restaurants in the UK.
“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.

“We’ve also donated thousands of meals from all our open restaurants to those on the frontline, including the NHS and key workers, in partnership with Deliveroo, and will continue to do so each week whilst the situation continues.”
In addition, both Burger King and Pret A Manger are also starting to come back online for deliveries, with both chains saying they have taken steps to make their services safer for both staff and customers.
Pret A Manger has said it is re-opening ten stores across London which are situated near hospitals, a move which will also allow the restaurant to: “…donate food to homeless charities, so we will be donating 7,000 additional meals per week to our homeless charity partners.”
Dining areas in all restaurants will remain closed in conjunction with the Governments lockdown measures.
