Quick service restaurant chain Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has partnered with Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to launch a delivery system for consumers on trains.
Where is the facility available?
The facility is available on 12 trains passing through New Delhi railway station and will be expanded to Vishakhapatnam, Hyderabad and Bengaluru stations over the next 10 days.
The service will initially be limited to trains which lack pantry cars and subsequently be expanded to trains like Rajdhani and Duronto.
How can you order?
Consumers will have to visit the IRCTC website or call on 1800-103-4139 to place their order. A password will then be sent by KFC to the consumer’s mobile phone which will have to be mentioned at the time of delivery.
What did KFC say regarding this e-catering service?
Dhruv Kaul, chief marketing officer, KFC India, said in a statement, “In India, train journeys and meals are inextricably linked and we are excited to bring KFC’s e-catering service to Indian railways. As a much-loved restaurant brand, we think that this initiative gives us a great opportunity to bring the craveable taste and quality of KFC to our fans, even when they are travelling. We intend to expand the service to other stations over the next few days.”
E-catering service is a joint effort from KFC and IRCTC to provide fresh food to the passengers on trains.
