FAST food restaurants, including McDonald’s and Nando’s have reopened their doors after temporarily closing due to lockdown on March 23.

Several are now offering a delivery, takeaway or drive-thru service, although they’re yet to open up their seated areas.

McDonalds is one of the restaurants that has reopened

This is because the government is staggering the reopening of shops to help curb Covid-19.

The restaurants have undertaken strict social distancing for delivery drivers and punters who are waiting to collect takeaway or delivery orders.

Some have also limited their menu options as workers get used to the new environments and social distancing restrictions.

Here is a list of all the fast food places that have reopened since lockdown.

Burger King

Burger King, famed for its Whoppers and flame-grilled burgers, has reopened more than 100 branches so far.

A total of 112 Burger King outlets are open for delivery via Deliveroo or Just Eat or for drive thrus.

This is expected to rise to 350 restaurants by the end of June.

Burger King is keeping a list updated on its website of when each branch is opening.

Deliveroo has a minimum spend of £5 for Burger King orders, plus a £2.95 delivery charge.

Just Eat charges a delivery fee of £2.50.

Five Guys

Each one of Five Guys’ 104 restaurants across the UK are now open for takeaway and delivery.

It initially kept 13 restaurants open for delivery and click and collect orders when the UK went into lockdown.

Five Guys then staggered the reopenings of its other branches.

If you’re placing a home delivery order with Deliveroo, you’ll need to spend a minimum of £5.

There’s also a delivery charge of £2.99 per order.

Greggs

The nation’s favourite pasty chain temporarily closed all of its 2,050 stores on March 24 as lockdown restrictions came into force, even though it was allowed to stay open for takeaway orders.

Just last month it shelved plans to reopen 20 stores due to overcrowding fears – but instead tested making food for charities.

Later in the month it then trialled reopening a small handful of undisclosed branches in Tyneside for delivery via Just Eat, collection and walk-in orders.

Last week, it then revealed it is reopening 800 stores from around June 18, while it aims to reopen the remainder of its 2,050 UK branches by July 1.

Greggs isn’t saying yet which branches will open first, so the best thing to do is keep an eye on its branch locator tool.

KFC

KFC fans can once again get their fried chicken fix after the fast food chain reopened a total of more than 700 branches by the end of May.

There is a full list of open restaurants on the KFC website.

Hungry customers were seen queuing for miles when KFC announced it was reopening drive-thru lanes at 55 restaurants on May 5.

If you’re ordering KFC for delivery, you can do so through Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats.

Make sure you check what the minimum spend or delivery fee is before you order.

KFC has more than 900 branches in the UK and employs around 24,000 members of staff.

McDonald’s

McDonalds’s, the home of Happy Meals, chicken nuggets and Big Macs, has opened 934 of its 1,350 UK branches so far.

The burger chain has broken down its restaurants into delivery only, drive-thru only, or both – although it is reopening for walk-in and takeaway orders from June 17.

It has an ever-expanding list of locations that are reopening, so you can keep up to date with its branch locator on its website.

Bear in mind stores are operating reduced opening hours of 11am to 10pm and reduced menus, which means no breakfast items although a return of the breakfast menu is being trialled from June 24.

You can also order McDonalds through Uber Eats and Just Eat, but, like the other restaurants, there is a minimum spend and delivery fee so make sure you take that into account.

Nando’s

Nandos – the home of Peri-Peri – will have 216 locations open for business by this weekend.

While dining areas remain closed, customers can order food for home delivery or click and collect.

All restaurants that offer click and collect also offer delivery, but Nando’s told HOAR that a small handful of locations that do deliver aren’t set up for collection yet.

Home delivery orders can be placed via Deliveroo or directly through the Nando’s website.

You’ll save money by ordering directly through Nando’s as the restaurant chain is currently offering free delivery on all orders placed for the next two weeks.

Orders placed through Deliveroo will be subject to a delivery fee, which varies depending on how far away from the restaurant you are.

Customers can also order for click and collect on Nandos.co.uk, depending on the restaurant.

Which restaurants remained open during lockdown?

Domino’s, Pizza Hut and Papa John’s among the fast-food outlets that have remained open throughout lockdown so Brits can get their pizza fix while staying indoors.

All three pizza chains have stopped collection orders to protect staff and customers alike, but you can order food to be delivered to your home.

This will be delivered entirely contact-free meaning your driver will call you when they arrive at the agreed location.

Once the order has been placed there, the driver will stay at least two metres away while you collect your order.

You can also order through Deliveroo, JustEat or Uber Eats.

ZSL London Zoo has revealed what its grounds will look like for animal lovers when it open its doors.

A Greene King pub has unveiled its new plans, including a 60 per cent seat capacity and one in, one out, toilets.

Meanwhile Primark will have fewer tills, no testers and new contactless returns.
