May 23, 2020 (IANSlife) If it's one thing that you've really been missing, it's your fast food isn't it! We feel your pain too!

But now, two fast food chains have come out with ways to keep both customers and team members safe, so you can snack on that burger and pizza without a worry.

KFC is doubling down on its efforts to keep its team members and customers safe with the introduction of KFC to Your Car or Bike. An extension of contactless takeaway, this is a first of its kind service in India with the food being delivered to your vehicle. Customers can place a prepaid order on the KFC App, website or Msite and arrive at the designated spot near the restaurant where their order will be delivered to them. The new service is being launched at select KFC restaurants across cities including New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, among others.
   
KFC has upped its existing operational protocols with its 4X Safety promise. Intensified sanitization at the restaurant includes all surface areas including tables, counters, doors, and door handles that are sanitized every 30-minutes. The delivery teams wash & sanitise their hands & bags after every order. All team members, including delivery riders, are regularly screened and undergo daily temperature checks, wear masks and gloves. Talking about this initiative Moksh Chopra, Chief Marketing Officer, KFC India said, “While delivery remains one of the easiest ways to access KFC, with ‘KFC to Your Car or Bike’, our aim is to offer safe and easy access to those who are already on the road for essential journeys or on their way home from difficult work shifts. It comes backed with our 4X safety promise – of sanitisation, social distancing, screening (of temperature) and contactless service. Through the use of the KFC app and digital payments, this service is easy, quick and completely contactless.”

Pizza Hut, India’s most trusted and loved pizza brand, now offers Contactless Takeaway across all operational stores in India. The company also continue its oven-to-home Contactless Delivery facility as well, which has been functioning throughout the lockdown. As social distancing and stringent sanitisation become the new norm, the fast food giant steps up to make your experience worry free. You can now enjoy the tastiest pizzas prepared and served to you with complete safety & hygiene by either ordering online or visiting a store. You can place an order via app, menu board or disposable leaflets. A tamper proof sticker is placed on your pizza boxes, team members will place orders at pre-sanitised counters.
