Starting at 9 AM today, locals in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Midrand, Durban, Cape Town and Bloemfontein can now place an order at selected Chicken Licken® outlets through the app, seven days a week. Whether customers are searching for inner peace or wanting to satisfy their craving, the menu caters to the most soulful of offerings from the brand.
Founded in the South of Johannesburg, Chicken Licken® is the largest non-American-owned fried chicken franchise in the world and will be the perfect addition to the app to continue providing locals with their favourite meals at the press of a button.
Ailyssa Pretorius, General Manager for Uber Eats South Africa says, “For years South Africans have been calling out for Chicken Licken® to deliver to their doorsteps, and we are thrilled to be the first delivery app to answer this demand and support Chicken Licken® with their new venture into the online food delivery space, providing them with the technology to adapt and thrive in the growing food delivery market.”
Chantal Sombonos van Tonder, Owner of Chicken Licken® adds, “Given the social outcry for Chicken Licken to offer a delivery service, we are taking a step in the right direction of addressing our customers craving and in so doing, partnering with Uber Eats. This has proven to be a much-needed addition to our business model and hopefully something that proves beneficial to the Brand and ultimately, the consumer.”
This partnership comes just after the launch of the Uber Eats app in South Africa’s largest township, Soweto, giving locals authentic meals at the push of a button. Chicken Licken® now joins the thousands of restaurants that are already taking advantage of the Uber Eats app to connect with customers to bring them meals conveniently and at Uber speed, for just R10.00 a delivery.
