People who often moaned about the ‘boring meals’ of Indian Railways, will have reason to be excited as they can now enjoy KFC’s meals on board.
According to a PTI report, the fast food chain has tied up with IRCTC to start a delivery system for passengers.
A statement issued by KFC said that, starting July 20, a person travelling on train can order KFC meal, while booking ticket through IRCTC under e-catering service initiatives.
To start with, this facility will only be available only on 12 trains passing through New Delhi railway station.
But, in next 10 days, the railways plan to extend this service to Vishakhapatnam, Hyderabad (Kacheguda) and Bangalore (Yeshwantpur) stations.
The KFC 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.”
KFC India Chief Marketing Officer Dhruv Kaul said, “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.”
The service will initially be limited to trains, which do not have pantry cars, but would be expanded to trains like Rajdhani and Duronto.
