WORLD FIRST ‘DRIVE-THROUGH ONLY’ KFC OPENS IN NEWCASTLE

Newcastle can lay claim to a world first, with the opening of KFC’s latest incarnation, a drive-through only outlet.

Boom gates, five lanes and a pickup window could be the shape of things to come.

Customers can order at the window – or via an app and online. In that case, they arrive at the gate and punch-in a pickup code.

According to KFC, Broadmeadow was chosen because of strong brand following.

“We also wanted a particular location that fir between two existing restaurants and was on a main road. So, this fit the brief, in terms of finding the right site to test the concept.” – Inara Gravitis, KFC Australia.

KFC says Australia’s click and collect economy sees 68-million orders a year.
