McDonald’s runs out of milkshakes as a result of HGV Driver Shortage

McDonald’s says it has run out of milkshakes at its restaurants in England, Scotland and Wales.

The fast-food chain said it some supply chain issues had affected availability of a small number of menu items.

These products also include some bottled drinks, which are temporarily unavailable in its 1,250 outlets in England, Scotland, and Wales.

The problems emerged because of low stock distribution caused by the continuing shortage of HGV drivers.

Last week, Nando’s was forced to close about 50 of its restaurants after running out of chicken.

Rival KFC also warned recently that supply chain issues meant it was unable to stock some menu items.
