Riding the ghost kitchen wave, KFC is set to open its first ghost kitchen in London. Other locations are possible in the future.

According to KFC, customers will be able to order through Deliveroo, JustEat, UberEats and KFC’s website and app. Orders are for delivery only.

“We’re excited by the potential of our delivery-only kitchens; ensuring our fans get their fried chicken fix in good time whilst also creating more jobs and improving the experiences of KFC team members and delivery drivers,” said James Whitehorn, chief development officer at KFC.

Other large brands have looked to expand through ghost kitchens in recent months. It is a way to establish a presence for a lower cost than opening a brick-and-mortar store.

“This launch presents an opportunity for us to reach more people than ever and let them enjoy KFC’s delicious fried chicken in their own homes,” Whitehorn said. “We can’t wait to see the results!”

KFC just opened its 1,000th location in the UK and Ireland.
