KFC is to reopen 500 more of its branches in the UK - including its branch in Borehamwood.

The fast-food restaurant in Shenley Road opened at midday today (Monday), according to KFC's own website.

There is a limited menu but customers will still be able to get their fix of Bargain Buckets and fried chicken.

KFC said its home delivery options will be available through Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats.

At the beginning of May, KFC reopened more than 50 drive-thru's in the country, with strict social distancing rules in place.

Now, as government restrictions ease, it is taking the next steps towards operating a more normal service.

Some of the safety procedures include

  • smaller kitchen team to help observe social distancing
  • increased hand washing and surface sanitising
  • niw signage and floor stickers to help delivery drivers keep a safe distance apart
  • Introduction of a limited menu to help the smaller team avoid switching kitchen stations, with clear floor markings
  • installation of protective screens where appropriate, with non-medical grade face masks and gloves made available for our teams
  • team members signing a health declaration and completing a new coronavirus training programme before returning to work
  • shorter trading hours to allow for smaller kitchen teams
