Local KFC Franchisee says KFC restaurants will re-open as soon as possible
The release also said that Tuesday’s unexpected closure was due, because of a voluntary move to have its food outlets closed, due to routine maintenance.
Yesterday several customers who were unaware that the outlets managed by Singh were closed, turned up only to see locked doors.
But despite the release from KFC indicating that the outlets will be reopening as soon as possible, this was the scene outside of the Stabroek Market outlet this afternoon.
When this Newscast visited the restaurant; customers were seen purchasing chicken from the side window and were not allowed to enter the dining area.
Several staff were seen cleaning the glass windows and also the doors.
One woman who was unaware of yesterday’s development when updated, opted to abandon her purchase.
Capitol News was reliably informed that officials from the KFC Regional office flew into Guyana to inspect the local branches and were shocked at the outlets’ conditions and ordered them closed.
There were reportedly several sanitary breaches in the kitchen departments and food preparation and storage areas at the outlets.
One employee who opted to remain anonymous said that they were not given much information about the exercise, but they were told by management to close the doors, end all the day’s sales and begin cleaning up the kitchen area.
