When visitors come to Uganda for the first time, they never fail to notice the country has remained untouched by westernized restaurant chains. There is no Starbucks. There is no McDonalds. There is no Pizza Hut. But soon there will be the first Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC).
Aside from the menu of traditional foods, fried chicken served with chips (or French fries) is one of the most popular food items. Ugandans LOVE chicken! Give someone here in Uganda a beef hamburger or slice of pizza, and you are merely providing a snack. But serve some fried chicken, and you are offering a satisfying meal.
The KFC is supposed to open within one of the popular shopping malls located in Kampala which attracts many of the international community. It will be a singular location for now.
Could this be the opening for other chains to follow? Stay tuned…
