KFC restaurant operator Collins Foods (ASX: CKF) closes in-restaurant dining

KFC restaurant operator Collins Foods (ASX: CKF) has announced in-restaurant dining areas will be closed in a bid to slow down the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19.

The company says it will immediately shift its focus to take-away, drive-thru and delivery - three areas that already account for around 80 per cent of sales.

Collins Foods is also putting in measures to limit the amount of cash and contact between staff and customers, including an encouragement to prepay orders via the KFC app.

"The health and wellbeing of Collins Foods' employees and customers is the company's number one priority, and never more so in these challenging and uncertain times," says CEO Graham Maxwell.
