In a world-first, KFC is partnering with Kewpie Japanese mayonnaise and launching a limited-edition Teriyaki Double Down. In conjunction with the launch, KFC is offering customers a once in a lifetime dining opportunity unlike anything seen before—all aboard the KFC sushi train. On Monday the 16th of September the KFC Fort Street store in Auckland will be transformed into a sushi-double-down train station, all featuring KFC’s famous products.
“The collaboration with Kewpie is a first for KFC, globally. We are taking the Double Down to the next level and aligning with the hype around Japan at this time,” said Arif Khan, CEO NZ Restaurant Brands Limited.
Sushi chef Bruce Lee, owner and face of Bruce Lee Sushi & Roll, is the mastermind behind the KFC sushi pieces. He said, “When KFC approached us, we realised quickly that this collaboration would be a fun and exciting way to add a Japanese flavour to KFC and also give us an opportunity to create unique combinations with popular KFC products.”
The Teriyaki Double Down will be available from KFC stores around the country for a limited time from the 17th of September.
