Are they closed for long? The people at Riccarton branch did not know why they are closed.

It's a good start. One down.

Ebola outbreak I heard.

Long overdue

That must be why it was SO busy at Hornby !

jcmp21, May 11, 7:52am
Hornby is always busy!

Went to the Hby one tonight. having travelled back from down sth. The drive thru was chocka so we went inside. The place was packed, and it was filthy. Had to ask staff for a dishcloth to wipe the table. MrC and grandson had some chicken, and I had a bit of coleslaw.
Wasn't impressed at all. First time had KFC for about 2 years. wont be back anytime soon

Really? Is anyone ever SO desperate for KFC that they'd drive from the papanui area to Hornby just to get it?

There is a branch in Shirley opp the Palms

sign in shop said closing in may for refurbishment?

dannyboy24, May 11, 6:50pm
could be a clue.

brightlights60, May 11, 11:29pm
Oh, was it actually chicken they sold?

lambrat, May 11, 11:38pm
they are all franchised, their meagre staff are paid peanuts, must work split shifts, high staff absentee and turnover.

craftylady1, May 12, 5:20am
That may be true, but doesn't make it acceptable

Linwood branch is always messy, I am sure they mop the floor with sticky water

Hornby is always filthy. I don't know how it keeps so busy with how dirty it is

jcmp21, May 12, 8:25am
If it wasn't so healthy, I don't think I'd ever go there tbh

lambrat, May 12, 8:58am
yes but looks like the owners and managers think it might be, because they are the ones filling in the gaps when staff don't show up.

Since when? When I was there only Riccarton Mall and Rangiora were privately owned the rest we owned by Restaurant brands

Papanui closed till September for total refurbishment. Bout time,,it was starting to look tacky.
Hornby is filthy, burgers cold, litter on the floor, dirty tables won't go back there.

I think that all KFC, like Pizza Hutt, and Starbucks are all under the Restaurant Brands umbrella

lambrat, May 15, 1:06pm
yep, my mistake, you're right about restaurant brands.

partingout, May 15, 10:54pm
walked by there the other day . Fenced off and people still trying to drive in . I think its September for new opening .

jcmp21, May 16, 6:17am
It's the same KFC that was closed one day and the drive thru was full of cars and people were sitting and waiting for ages for a person to take their order, then eventually driving up to the window and stopping to look in to see it was actually closed, buuuuuut, other cars were still rolling in the back and queuing up and doing the same thing. Funniest thing ever as it was happening all day.

They could have just rocked on up to Sequoia
