Chicken lovers in Kampala are in for a treat after fast food restaurant KFC opened shop just in time for Christmas. The Bugolobi based branch was opened on Tuesday at 3pm. Maurice Kirya was one of the main celebrants.
The second branch will be opened in January 2014 at Acacia Mall right opposite Capital FM offices and by the end of 2014, Kentucky Fried Chicken will have a total of five restaurants with a branch in Entebbe as revealed by South African entrepreneur, Simon Schaffer following the launch of the first outlet in Kampala.
Just last Sunday, the fourth branch of KFC in Nairobi was opened. Meanwhile, the restaurant had very long lines on it's first day of operation though some were ranting about the prices being 'high'. The KFC 21 piece bucket is going for 99,000/- which precisely is 4,750/- per chicken piece.
Most chicken outlets in Kampala have always had issues with the size of chicken coupled with high prices, a thing that KFC is likely to address. Short of the 21 pieces, you can still do with a 'Variety Feast' going for 65,000/- that include 9 pieces of chicken, two burgers, french fries and a coke.
In other news, early this year, Steers on Kampala road closed and it was later taken up by another entity whose menu pricing was way above average, but then again, they also closed for renovations with a promise to resume operations by November 15, but up to now, there is a 'Closed for renovation' sign hanging at the door.
