KFC to open new branch in Mandalay within six months

The world-renowned Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) fast-food restaurant chain plans to open a new branch in Central Myanmar within six months, it is learnt.

KFC has already opened several branches in Yangon, with others planned in the country’s major cities. It takes a minimum of six months to open a new branch, enough time to train new employees, KFC officials said.

Since the American fast-food chain opened its first restaurant on Bogyoke Aung San Road in downtown Yangon in June 2015, some consumers have criticized KFC for being too expensive. But KFC officials said their prices in Myanmar are actually cheaper when compared to KFC restaurants in other countries.

The opening of the first restaurant attracted large crowds that queued for hours. To meet continued consumer demand, KFC made a decision to open more outlets in Myanmar. Officials said KFC and competitors such as Lotteria have changed the eating habits of Myanmar residents.

KFC is the first major US fast food chain to open in the country.
