I think they've been given the OK from HQ to accept 50% by phones.

Just called 2 stores and they both said to come in and order at the cashier, they will honor it
You actually got through? I keep getting a busy signal at my closest locations.

I love that this thread has become the digital version of the infamous Popeye's ad that was posted on the first few pages. KFC has the chicken, but they just won't sell it to you!

My store in Ottawa says it can only be via online. I've tried the english line for customer support, the automated response was the website is down. I've called the french line, and an actual employee said it has to be made by online and there's nothing they can do about it.

This promo is so poorly done...

On my way to home after work, I stopped at the Fraser and E Broadway location. I showed the girl my phone still tried to load the page after 4 hours. She offered me 50% off of my order. Doesn't hurt to try if you can get to a store.

Ordering system was really messed up, first order I put in this morning for pickup gave me an coupon invalid error so I didn't bother. Tried again an hour later and the order went through and received an e-mail confirmation. Checked my CC and there were two pending charges ... Called CS who directed me to call the store as they had no visibility into the orders (RFD effect), manager said they only received one order. So I'll be keeping my eye on my statement balance for the next few days while everything processes (including all this fried chicken lol).

As for the chicken itself I got a mix of larger and smaller pieces this time around (compared to the typical Colonel's deals for 8 or 12 pieces). Thighs are definitely split but the rib pieces are decently sized, didn't see too many wings in the bucket. If you compare it to store bought fried chicken (Loblaws 9 piece for $10), 25 pieces according to the way KFC cuts them now is roughly two birds. Add in two boxes of fries, 3 salads and a gravy for $10 more that's about what you'd pay in a grocery store if not a bit more for the sides.

So it wasn't just me having issues with the website lol, I gave up after I realized it was a delivery order and I don't really need chicken, was hoping I could pick it up at the KFC at the food court I was already sitting in

But it's a shitshow for all?

calling in store for them to honor it depends on if the store manager will allow it. in my case all of **** etobicoke kfc's are run by [...] who dont give a shit

Although some stores are being reasonable and honouring the 50% CM deal, KFQ HQ will not officially inform franchisees to honour the promo because they want users to sign up online and get their valuable customer info.

Edit: So what you do is show on your phone that you have signed up and have ordered and have been stuck for hours..

1 866-KFC-4-YOU <-- Is this KFC's way of telling us off?

funny story with etobicoke kfc. there is a kfc mixed with taco bell. wanted to get $1 EXTRA after buying a KFC combo for a taco and they said they can't mix taco bell and kfc shit.
da ****. every other store allows it except this store? why even have two store in one building if you are not going to allow a mix? Wtf.

In what step of ordering KFC online does it give you the option of picking up at the store? I'm tempted to use the store address

KFC website sucks. Use the postal code and then type in your address from there.
The next page have the options for pick up.

896 Burnhamthorpe Rd W in Mississauga is honoring the 50% in store. No orders over the phone, just go in.

It's a little busy and it's not the fastest service at the moment, but there's only 2 people working and they're doing the best they can. That being said, wtf KFC, way to short staff your stores.

Edit: A ton of people came in when I left, I imagine that'll slow things down a lot... Lots of people are being rude and angry, so just a reminder that the customer service person isn't at fault for all of this. They didn't make the website or decide to be short staffed, and pissing them off is going to make service even worse.

KFC has been so unpopular lately that even HQ believed it and never foresaw such a demand

I appreciate you taking the time to do the screenshots.

I guess it's a local thing here in Edmonton. The two stores near me don't deliver or do pick up at all. Then the two I found that is 3 KM and 6 KM away only gives the option of delivery. Where you have the two options for delivery or pick with the estimated times, it only shows the delivery option for me. No pick up option.

So I used the address of the store LOL and just go there to pick up.

Thanks again for doing the screenshots!

Ordered around noon for 4pm pickup. It is the best tasting KFC I have had for a long time. Went for the hot & spicy and it was way better than original. Sizes are fair. Still hot and crispy. I wouldn't pay full price for the 20pc bucket. Thanks OP.
