Congrats Tauranga you just hit the jackpot!

Tauranga is in line for KFC's home delivery trial, and New Zealand Post couriers will be behind the wheel.

According to a release from KFC owner Restaurant Brands Ltd, customers will be able to order on the fried chicken chain's website and have their food delivered by an NZ Post driver.

Restaurant Brands chief executive Ian Letele said the decision to partner with NZ Post was due to their expertise in logistics.

"NZ Post has an extensive delivery distribution network around New Zealand, and KFC is available in most towns nationwide. With the support of NZ Post, we hope to service the home delivery needs of many more KFC customers throughout New Zealand," said Letele.

Restaurant Brands is planning to roll out home delivery to between a third to half of KFC stores across New Zealand.

Four stores in the region will be part of the home delivery pilot: Gate Pa, Mount Maunganui, Papamoa, and Tauranga.
