Smugglers bringing KFC into Gaza from Egypt

A new smuggling service in Egypt is bringing KFC to fast-food craving Gazans. Thanks to the new junk-food delivery service, hungry Gazans can order fried chicken via the service's Facebook fan page.

The fast-food smugglers are using an underground network of tunnels to bring Kentucky Fried Chicken to hungry consumers. However, the service is hardly fast, taking several hours to arrive from door to door.KFC

The Palestinian delivery company, named Yamama, receives orders via its Facebook page and then orders the meals from the KFC restaurant located around 25 miles away from the Gaza strip. The company will handle around 30 orders at a time and once picked up will deliver the food using motorbikes, taking up to three or four hours in total.

"We place the order with the restaurant in El-Arish, then drive it in a car to the Egyptian side of Rafah," said Khalil al-Ifranji, director of Yamama. "Someone takes it from there through the tunnels to (Gazan) Rafah. They then drive it to our headquarters (in Gaza City)."
KFC Egypt

The KFC delivery service is the newest trend for smugglers eager to bring banned or hard-to-get products to the Gaza Strip. The Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli blockade for the past six years, meaning it is hard for Gazans to travel to Egypt to get hold of some ‘finger-lickin' good’ chicken.

Residents are forking out 130 shekels – about £23 – for 20 pieces of the colonel’s fried chicken, around double the normal price. Explainng why civilians are so happy to pay more for the food Ifranji said: "People can't travel regularly, and those who've tried this food really miss it. Those who haven't, dream of it."
