Lovers of chicken rejoice!

People travelling in Indian trains can now enjoy KFC’s meals on board as the fast food chain has tied up with IRCTC to start a delivery system for passengers.

Now a person travelling on a train can order a KFC meal while booking tickets through IRCTC – a service that will begin on July 20 – under e-catering service initiatives, KFC said in a statement.

Presently, this facility is available only on 12 trains passing through New Delhi railway station.

However, it will be expanded to Vishakhapatnam, Hyderabad (Kacheguda) and Bangalore (Yeshwantpur) stations over the next 10 days, the statement added.

Consumers will have to visit the IRCTC website or call on 18001034139 (Toll Free) to place their order. A password will then be sent by KFC to the consumer’s mobile phone which will have to be mentioned at the time of delivery.

The service will initially be limited to trains which do not have pantry cars and would subsequently be expanded to trains like Rajdhani and Duronto.

As a much-loved restaurant brand, we think that this initiative gives us a great opportunity to bring the craveable taste and quality of KFC to our fans, even when they are travelling. We intend to expand the service to other stations over the next few days.
– Dhruv Kaul, KFC India Chief Marketing Officer
