KFC has teamed up with Wing, Australia’s first on-demand drone delivery service to bring their range of hot and fresh menu items direct to homes and workplaces in Logan, Queensland.

The drone delivery pilot, an Australian-first for KFC, will initially be available to a small number of households in the South East Queensland suburbs of Kingston, Logan Central, Slacks Creek, Underwood, and Woodridge, and service will gradually expand to include other nearby locations.

Whether you’re craving a spicy Zinger Burger, some delicious nuggets or you’re after some *chef’s kiss hot chips, customers in the Wing delivery area can now get their KFC faves delivered by drone.

All you have to do is download the Wing delivery app from the app store, enter your address and submit an order.

In partnership with Collins Food Limited, KFC Australia’s largest corporate franchise partner, a ‘cloud’ kitchen has been developed. This unique kitchen will freshly prepare KFC’s chicken ready for drone delivery, allowing customers to get their KFC within minutes—the ultimate convenience.

The Wing drone has a wingspan of 1.3 metres, weighs about 5 kgs and can carry packages up to 1.5 kgs at a speed of more than 110km/h. Wing’s fastest delivery to date is 2 minutes and 47 seconds.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
