Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Just announced. KFC will open its largest CH restaurant in Lausanne (Flon area) in Spring 2019. They are taking over a location that Philip Morris had rented as a showcase for their new IQOS product (they pulled out due to opposition).

Total space of 900m2 over three floors. That is a lot of chicken!

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

I popped into the Geneva location to try it - can't recall the last time I had it (More than a decade). Spicy Zinger, was tasty

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Finally, decision on KFC location in Zurich settled: Beginning of summer you can enjoy KFZ at the Grossmünster in Zurich.

Best check it out on a Sunday. Should KFC not take your money, the church will no doubt.

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

I do wonder if their feasibility involved looking up the old KFC Quest threads on EF. Good Times.

I remember KFC even arranged a banner welcoming English forum at one of the events.

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

I go to Kennedy's pub for wings. They have nights when they are cheaper. Each week they have an additional special flavor- my favorite is chili and lime week.

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

I really disliked the KFC in Geneva. Too pricey and the food was rubbish.

I prefer the chicken wings at Clubhouse near the lake.

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Just for info.
Kfc in Shoppyland opens tomorrow in Bern.
12.00
Now it is only 90 minutes away - hopefully they can maintain the quality.
Geneva went gradually downhill after the opening day. Undercooked 3 times in a row, so I stopped going.
Fingers crossed this time.

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Trouble in paradise:

"They were 30, now half that"

Basically, drastic staff cuts, 16-17h days, unpaid child allowances, the list goes on.
