KFC is a brilliant company, full of incredible people. We make great food, and we care about how we do it. We don’t do things by halves at KFC. We come from Kentucky, and were founded by Colonel Harland Sanders. A real place, and a real person. We always strive to be as open, honest and responsible as possible. Trust and respect are of paramount importance in everything we do; from the way we deal with our partners, to the way we treat our colleagues and our guests. Where we come from, there’s saying: “There are no strangers. Only friends we haven’t yet met”. So our doors are always open to everyone, and our table always has a spare seat at it. That’s why we make buckets to share. We are as warm and welcoming to colleagues and guest as the Colonel was when he opened his kitchen to weary travellers all those years ago, and embody the spirit of Southern hospitality – albeit a modern take on it.
