KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken)
is another American quick service restaurant that has piqued the taste buds of Filipinos. The company started offering its fried chicken infused with the 11 secret herbs and spices of Colonel Sanders way back in 1940 and began selling franchises in 1952. In the Philippines, Manuel Agustines acquired the sole franchise of the company in the country in 1994.
KFC offers different variations of chicken on its menu. There are even instances when the store would offer menu items for a limited time period, such as the KFC Double Down Burger and Double Down Dog. Aside from chicken, the store also offers brownies, spaghetti, mashed potatoes, and mushroom soup, among others. The prices of the menu items at KFC are between PhP54, for the Spaghetti, and PhP579, for its Regular Bucket Meal. The chain also frequently has movie tie-ups such that their meals are served in cups, boxes, and buckets with movie themes.
Since KFC is one of the most popular quick service restaurants offering chicken as its main product, the stores are expected to be filled nearly to the brim during lunch and dinner. Because of this, it is advisable to visit the stores before or after these times. Most of the stores of the company are located in major malls around the country, which means suitable parking space is available unless there is a major sale in the mall. In this case, it may not be easy to find a slot in the parking area of the mall.
All fast food or quick service restaurants typically have a similar ambience. The in-house music is usually the jingle of the company or any upbeat music to enhance the dining experience of their customers. The service is fast to ensure all customers are accommodated with reasonable waiting time. The staff goes through sufficient training to allow them to provide the best service to their customers.
The establishment of quick service restaurants in the country has met the demand of professionals for a quick way to dine and keep up with the fast pace of life in the city. Fast food chains also spell good food after a long day at work
, when people just want to rest and enjoy their meals without having to spend whatever energy they have left. Furthermore, these fast food stores also usually offer different variations in their menu as well as other deals and promos
every month to ensure that their customers will always have something new to look forward to in their next visit.
