Since earlier this year when the whole world began to seemingly fall apart around us, above job security and just generally staying alive, I’m sure that for someone like me, your main concern was, “how am I going to continue to safely feed me Fried chicken addiction?”
Well, worry no longer as KFC Japan has heard your cries of desperation and has recently started a new ‘pick-up locker’ service in Tokyo. While just a trial, there are plans to roll this system out all across the country soon.
Obviously, the main idea behind this service is being able to continue business as normal whilst also maintaining social distancing practices, and this definitely seems like the best way to do so. By logging on to the website on your phone, you’ll be able to place your order on the way to your location.
A code is then emailed to you along with a locker number, and then you’ll be able to collect your food when you arrive.
As the popularity of services like Uber-Eats, Deliveroo & Maishoku has grown exponentially in the last 6 months. It’s also easy to see how a system like this might make things easier for delivery drivers to pick up orders, minimizing the risk of infection via contact.
