The function will kick off with an exclusive media tour of the restaurant at Village Mall in Bugolobi, Kampala, and a welcome special surprise opening day meal.


The media team will be hosted by Simon Schaffer MD Kuku Foods East Africa Limited and Carol Taylor GM Kuku Foods Uganda.


While officials described the opening of the restaurant as “a historic occasion in Uganda,” there are concerns about obesity that comes with fast foods and also the restaurant’s choice of suppliers of chicken.


Ugandan poultry farmers are looking forward to seeing KFC buying chicken from their farms.


KFC was founded by Harland Sanders, an entrepreneur who began selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky, during the Great Depression.


Sanders identified the potential of the restaurant franchising concept, and the first “Kentucky Fried Chicken” franchise opened in Utah in 1952.
