But DoorDash's CEO told CNBC, "To bring you hot chicken wings under 30 minutes is a lot harder than it sounds."

For one, the partnership seemed to pick test locations that specialize in traffic jams.

And residents in those cities aren't as centralized as, say, Chicago or New York –– meaning delivery routes could be less efficient. (Video via KFC)

However, the companies hope mobile order systems will smooth out the delivery process.

The Wall Street Journal notes KFC delivery is in other countries, like crowded China.

Although rival Popeyes doesn't yet offer delivery, other major food chains in the U.S. — like Chipotle, McDonald's and Starbucks — do, and KFC likely doesn't want to fall behind. (Videos Popeyes Louisiana KitchenChipotle Mexican GrillMcDonald's)
