McDonald's and KFC queues still busy as most branches open

McDonald's and KFC have remained incredibly busy since the day they opened, with severe queue handling measures in full force.

On the day KFC opened, May 6, the police were called to shut off the road as it caused traffic jams, causing KFC staff to take on their own measures. 

Two weeks on, the fast food restaurant still has a constant stream of cars queuing for their services, but instead of queuing back onto the roundabout, they're taking up Vivacity Sports & Leisure Centre Premium's car park. 

McDonald's announced they would be reopening two weeks after KFC, and have since faced the same issue. 

On day one, queues were lining up and blocking roads, but staff have now taken measures to scatter them around the car park.

KFC Hampton has been substantially busier than London Road, though they have both seen constant queues. Meanwhile, mere days after opening, all six McDonalds around the city have been hit with incredibly busy queues, forcing people to line up for half an hour to get their McNuggets. 

It's undetermined when the queues are likely to die down for both fast food restauraunts, but it's likely that they will pick back up again when McDonald's announce that their breakfast menu is back on the table. 

Krispy Kreme has also opened to the public once again, though it shares the car park being used for queues with KFC and McDonald's in Hampton, which is likely to be a challenge for those just looking for a box of donuts.
