KFC jumps on the #ChickenSad hashtag, offers a solution to Chicken Joy shortage
The chicken war intensifies
Patrons of the fast food giant Jollibee have been using the #ChickenSad hashtag to express their frustration and disappointment over the unavailability of favorites on the menu-including the iconic Chicken Joy-for a week now...and on Thursday (August 7), another fast food giant stepped in to remind people that there are alternatives.
"No such thing as #ChickenSad in the house of #SoGood" reads the caption on the photo on KFC Philippine’s Facebook page
Update: Not to be outdone, Kogi Bulgogi jumps in on the fowl wagon and offers happiness:
"Turn that frown upside down! Let us all be #chickenhappy with our#kpopchicken" reads the caption on Kogi Bulgogi’s Facebook page
In any case, Jollibee released a statement on the "shortage" on the same day, saying that, "We are committed to having all our products-including Chickenjoy, Jolly Spaghetti and Yumburgers-available again in all our affected stores soonest. We would like to apologize for this inconvenience, and thank our customers for bearing with us."
KFC’s willing to take care of the flock for a while and there’s also the Top 10 Southern-Style Fried Chicken to try while Jollibee is "upgrading" their system.
