KFC announced something huge today - their fried chicken can make its way to your home - that is, if you live in one of two major U.S. cities. Colonel Sanders is delivering chicken in San Francisco and Los Angeles starting today. The company said that if it takes off, they will expand the services to Houston and other major cities as time and personnel allow. Their hope is that they will try out about 100 different locations before they make a decision about offering it at all 4,300 KFC locations in the U.S.

They won't be doing it alone, however. KFC will work with DoorDash, an online delivery company to deliver chicken, biscuits, fries, and coleslaw. There won't be a separate app: customers will have to order through the DoorDash website or app.

There are a few things to keep in mind: Some of the items on the items will be more expensive than they are in stores. Some things, like value meals, will be the same price because they are more expensive, according to USA Today. Almost everything from the menu will be available, but there will be a deliver fee between $4.99 and $6.99 - plus tip.

The rival of KFC, Popeyes, doesn't deliver yet either, but they do at other locations and they might be looking at delivering here. Chipotle, Starbucks, Panera, and McDonalds also have deliver through a company called Postmates. Taco Bell works with DoorDash as well.

"The great thing about buckets of chicken," KFC says, is that "it holds its temperature incredibly well."
