Wing now Finger Clickin’ Good in Australia

Package delivery company Wing will be adding some wings to its Australian operations.


The drone logistics company – an Alphabet subsidiary – has added fast food company KFC’s products to its list of deliverables in Logan, Queensland.

Customers now have the option to order their favourite KFC products on the Wing app, which can be downloaded from mobile Android and iOS platforms.

This, the company says, is in response to requests by residents in the city to include KFC’s zinger burgers, hot wings and chicken nuggets to their catalogue.

“The people of Logan proposed, and we liked it so we put a Wing on it,” Wing said in a statement.

“In response to our most commonly requested item from our Logan customers, we’re teaming up with Kentucky Fried Chicken to deliver a range of hot and fresh menu items, direct to homes and workplaces in Logan, Queensland.”

The drone delivery pilot, an Australian-first for KFC, will initially be available to a small number of households in the South East Queensland suburbs of Kingston, Logan Central, Slacks Creek, Underwood, and Woodridge, and service will gradually expand to include other nearby locations.

Wing celebrated going past 100,000 deliveries in Logan last August, which included 10,000 cups of coffee, 1,700 children’s snack packs, 1,200 roast chickens, 2,700 sushi rolls, and 1,000 loaves of bread.

“We’ve seen a significant increase in use of our on-demand drone delivery service in southeast Queensland … with many customers finding on-demand drone delivery especially useful as they stayed home, and relied on our contactless service to deliver the things they needed,” Wing’s Queensland city manager Ojiako-Pettit said.

And now, in about the same amount of time it takes for chicken to crisp up and get its golden hue, Wing customers in Logan can now get their KFC favourites delivered by drone.
