Buying a KFC franchise
I have a franchise in Sydney, am i allowed to buy another food franchise? I’m interested in KFC.
Though KFC would prefer you not to have other significant business commitments, they would be happy to let you run their franchise whilst operating another if you are not in direct competition with them. What franchise is it you own? If it is one in the fast food industry e.g. McDonalds, Domino’s Pizza, Subway or similar ventures, then KFC will not offer consider you for the franchise.
KFC is part of the YUM! Restaurants International group in Australia. Other members include Pizza Hut, A&W, Long John Silver’s and Taco Bell.
A Canadian named Bob Lapointe opened the first Australian KFC (formerly Kentucky Fried Chicken) restaurant in Guildford, Sydney in 1968. KFC now has more than 600 stores in Australia and New Zealand.
