Now a person travelling on train can order a KFC meal, while booking their tickets through IRCTC, from July 20 onwards, under e-catering service initiatives. KFC announced its tie up with IRCTC on Tuesday. Presently, this facility is available only on 12 trains passing through New Delhi railway station.
In effect immediately, passengers can now opt for meals from KFC while booking their ticket through the IRCTC website. More specifically, the option has been rolled out for trains that don’t have pantry cars. It will soon be expanded to Rajdhani and Duronto.
After the ticket is booked, a password will be sent by KFC to the consumer’s mobile phone which will have to be mentioned at the time of delivery, it said. E-catering service is a joint effort from KFC and IRCTC to provide fresh food to the passengers on trains. “As a much-loved restaurant brand, we think that this initiative gives us a great opportunity to bring the craveable taste and quality of KFC to our fans, even when they are travelling. We intend to expand the service to other stations over the next few days,” KFC India Chief Marketing Officer, Dhruv Kaul said.
