Kentucky Fried Chicken is testing a new home delivery food service with the help of DoorDash.
The company is currently performing a test run for the program in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Orange County in Southern California.
“I think consumers really want three things: value, quality food and convenience. I think DoorDash really solves the last one,” said KFC’s U.S. Chief Information Officer Chris Caldwell during a phone interview with MSNBC.
The chain plans to quickly ramp up testing from about 60 locations Thursday to roughly 100 after it adds a new testing market in Texas. KFC has not released a nationwide timeline at this time.
DoorDash is quickly becoming one of the top food delivery services in the country.
“To bring you hot chicken wings under 30 minutes is a lot harder than it sounds,” DoorDash CEO Tony Xu tells MSNBC.
DoorDash currently serves 18 markets and more than 250 cities. It already has a partnership with Taco Bell, which is owns by KFC parent company Yum Brands.
