New Zealand KFC locations are deploying kiosks this year to speed up ordering, according to the Nzherald.com.
KFC France has already deployed kiosks, where customers place their orders on the touchscreen terminals and then pick up meals up from a dedicated counter.
The company doesn't plan on laying off any employees, said Russel Creedy, chief executive of parent company Restaurant Brands. In fact, he expects the restaurants to become busier.
"If anything, you tend to increase staff because you get more customers through the door," Creedy said in the story.
KFC customers may still order from employees or use the kiosks. The kiosks, Creedy said, will give them more time to browse the menu. The first New Zealand KFC deployment will be in Auckland's North Shore.
