You should have gone for napkin with brown sauce then.

Why would I wanna eat anything else at a KFC than chicken?!

It depends if it's proper gravy or that weird stuff the Americans call gravy.
Proper gravy is yummy with mashed potatoes.

KFC comes to Switzerland

Just reading the union newspaper 'Hotellerie & Gastronomie', stumbled over small article
It says, KFC wants to try again to establish itself in CH. In spring they'll announce the location of the first Resto. They apparently already have around 50 places earmarked in bigger towns ( it IS CH after all can't say cities&#128514, however they keep the names under wraps .

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Looks like we have to wait until next year for our KFC in Bern - seems like they are having problems getting approval. (I think Migros have a Chickeria in the same place)

https://www.bernerzeitung.ch/region/...story/25681740

Google translation.
The fast-food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is trying to gain a foothold in Switzerland for a second time. After a failed endeavor in the Romandie a good twelve years ago, KFC announced last January that it is expanding into Switzerland.

As the first location for a restaurant, the shopping center Shoppyland was called in Schönbühl, the opening was announced for this fall. But nothing will come of it. Currently, the opening is scheduled for mid-2018, says Andrea Bauer, spokeswoman for Migros Aare, which leases the space.

The approval procedure is delayed, Bauer said. Yesterday, KFC Switzerland's media department was unable to answer the questions about the delays and the state of expansion plans.

While waiting for Kentucky Fried Chicken will take a few more months, shoppyland will soon be donuts. The Dunkin 'Donuts chain will have a take-away on the ground floor. Currently, the building application has been published and employees are being sought. Dunkin 'Donuts wants to open in November, says Andrea Bauer. (HUS)

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

KFC in Shoppyland, nice - though I'll believe it when I see it. Shoppyland is just far enough away from Bern to make it not very convenient unless you have a car. Still I'll make the trip if they open

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Planned to open next month near Geneva Main station according to 20min, Source (German language).

Although the chickens come from Holland the menu price will still be double the Germany prices!

They claim you will be able to have unlimited free drink refills!

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Maybe kfc do not sell the bits where the eggs come out of?
Or just in the burgers.
Just hoping that the high pressure - high temp fryers kill most of the salmonella.
Anyway I reckon most of the kfc chickens are virgins.
Propergation is done in another shack.
Just lick your fingers and do not think too much about it - bit like meeting a strange girl after too many beers.

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Saying nothing.
Always wondered what happened to the mothers of the eggs.
In Scotland they joined the food chain when they stopped laying.
This was a long time ago when my son worked in a chicken factory near Edinburgh airport - Marshals - since shut down.
Chicken stock cubes?
