KFC has teamed up with Australia’s first on-demand drone delivery service, Wing to pilot a drone delivery service to deliver Kentucky Fried Chicken, and a range of hot and fresh menu items, direct to homes and workplaces in Logan, Queensland.
The drone delivery pilot, an Australian-first for KFC, will initially be available to a small number of households in the South East Queensland suburbs of Kingston, Logan Central, Slacks Creek, Underwood, and Woodridge, and service will gradually expand to include other nearby locations.
Customers simply download the Wing delivery app from the App Store or Google Play, enter their address, and submit their order. The KFC food items will be prepared fresh by the KFC team at the Wing delivery site and delivered within minutes by drone, with no delivery fee.
“We’re excited to be teaming up with KFC, to expand their delivery options for customers by taking its customer favourites to new heights, through the skies of Logan, Queensland — the drone delivery capital of the world,” Wing Queensland city manager, Dave Ojiako-Pettit said.
“We’ve seen a significant increase in use of our on-demand drone delivery service in South East Queensland. Wing made more than 100,000 deliveries to the Logan community in 2021, with many customers finding on-demand drone delivery especially useful as they stayed home and relied on our contactless service to deliver the things they needed.”
KFC Australia chief marketing officer, Kristi Woolrych added, “We’re always looking for ways to enhance the customer experience, so we’re thrilled to be teaming up with Wing to provide the Logan community this Australian first. Given the last 18 months, Australians have relied on delivery more, so it’s great to be making life easier for fans who want to get their hands on KFC in a flash.”
