KFC And Taco Bell Will Start Delivering Food And I’m Already Scared For My Health
There are a number of restaurants out there with a business model that depends on people in an altered state of mind to generate a significant chunk of their revenue. Places like Jack in the Box that openly cater to marijuana aficianados while others— like Taco Bell— attempt to lure in customers by coming up with a wide variety of creations that you have to be either drunk or high (or both) to truly appreciate.
However, plenty of people who’ve tried to get their fast food fix after consuming their substance(s) of choice have run into the ultimate catch-22: having to drive somewhere in order to get food you only crave when you’re too intoxicated to operate a motor vehicle. Last year, McDonald’s set out to solve this conundrum by testing out delivery, and now two more major players are going out of their way to cater to people who are too stoned to get off of their couch.
According to The Chicago Tribune, Yum Brands— the parent company of Taco Bell and KFC— has inked a deal with GrubHub to start delivering food from those restaurants directly to peoples’ doors. They’re already begun testing the service in smaller markets and hope to expand to more locations across the country over the course of the year.
I for one can’t wait to order a KFC family meal and yell “Hey guys, the chicken’s here!” before opening the door for the delivery guy and eating an entire bucket by myself.
