KFC surpasses 30K restaurants globally

KFC’s newest restaurant in Rome, Italy, marks the company’s 30,000th global location. The company announced the milestone today, noting that a new KFC location opens somewhere in the world every 3.5 hours on average.

“Opening our 30,000th restaurant is a testament to the support of our local business partners, employees, and customers over the past nearly 75 years,” Sabir Sami, CEO of KFC Global, said in a statement.  “While we are a global brand, we aim to meet the unique needs and expectations of our guests on a local level, with menus that resonate with the local culture and flavors of each community. That also includes serving local communities through our food donation and upskilling programs, which operate in many of our markets, including Italy.”
