KFC's wild stunt as Aussie fave arrives on UberEats

Fried chicken fans around Australia will now be able to order KFC on Uber Eats as the fast food chain makes its debut on the platform in every state and territory.

To celebrate more Aussies finally being able to enjoy a bucket of chicken at home, KFC dropped a gigantic drumstick (or at least a skydiver dressed up as one) from 4,000 metres above Melbourne into a six-metre high Uber Eats bag.

A bit of fun

"We're always up for a bit of fun, so what better way to make some noise about this new partnership than having a huge Kentucky Fried Chicken drumstick jump out of a plane and land into a giant Uber Eats bag?" said KFC Australia CMO Sally Spriggs.

"Just like us, I'm sure fans will have a bit of a chuckle about this, and we're thrilled that more people will be able to get KFC delivered fresh and fast with just a few taps on the Uber Eats app."

Spriggs, who says the fast food giant is pretty excited to have finally "landed" on Uber Eats, adds that it's no secret Aussies love having convenient ways to get their favourite food delivered.


According to Uber Eats ANZ General Manager Bec Nyst, the desire for KFC has been "sky high" based on the thousands of searches on the restaurant's app.

Now that KFC has finally arrived on Uber Eats, the people behind the online food delivery platform thought they would mark the occasion by telling the story in an "impactful, distinct and memorable way".

"It might not fly into your bag, but all KFC's favourites are now available to get in a few clicks on the Uber Eats app in every state and territory," Nyst said.

TL;DR: KFC fans can now order from 500 stores around the nation, so hook yourself up with an Ultimate Box, two-piece feed or the finger-lickin' good menu item of your choice.
