    Kentucky Fried Chicken announced that its world-famous fried chicken is now available for order and on-demand delivery through DoorDash, the nation’s leading last-mile logistics platform. To celebrate the new partnership, KFC and DoorDash are offering fried chicken fans across the U.S. an irresistible deal: Beginning September 8, through Thursday, September 17, customers will receive 12 free chicken tenders with the purchase of select KFC bucket meals on orders placed through the DoorDash website or app with promo code KFC12.

    To sweeten the deal, customers will also receive $0 delivery fees alongside their select bucket meal purchase, available from more than 3,000 KFC restaurant locations through September 17.

    Since 1952, KFC has helped families enjoy a bucket of fried chicken practically anywhere, traveling easily while staying fresh and ready-to-eat. Some might even say the bucket was made for delivery, and this new partnership gives customers yet another way to enjoy KFC wherever they want, courtesy of DoorDash.

    “We are always looking for ways to make it easier for our customers to get our world-famous fried chicken delivered right to their table, hot and fresh,” says Chris Caldwell, chief technology officer, KFC U.S. “By partnering with DoorDash, we're giving fried chicken fans more ways to feed their cravings and offering one of our best limited-time deals yet—12 free chicken tenders with the purchase of select bucket meals.”

    According to a recent survey from DoorDash, which polled 1,000 chicken-eaters nationwide, 92 percent of respondents say fried chicken is their go-to comfort food, so what better way to cozy up and enjoy a night in than with KFC’s world-famous fried chicken? And with an extra 12 free tenders, you won’t have to be a part of the 54 percent of people who admitted to battling it out for the last piece of chicken in the bucket.

    “At a time when more people are enjoying their meals safely from the comfort of their homes, DoorDash’s geographic coverage made us a great fit as KFC looked to expand their off-premise operations. We are proud to be KFC’s largest partner by coverage, serving nearly 75 percent of their locations in the U.S.,” says Toby Espinosa, vice president of business development at DoorDash. “Forty-three percent of Americans say they could eat more than ten chicken tenders in one sitting, which is why we are excited to kick off the partnership in a big way with 12 tenders added to their bucket meals. We hope our customers will have even more reason to gather around the table with their families and friends and their favorite bucket and sides.”
