KFC taking customers behind the counter

Up to 300 KFCs across the country will be opening up their kitchens on Saturday 30th March. Fans will be given an exclusive look behind the scenes to see first hand how KFC cooks make the famous Original Recipe chicken fresh in restaurants every day.

KFC is opening up its kitchens and giving UK customers the chance to look behind the counter for a taste of what it takes to be a staff member and one of the world’s most popular fast food chains. Customers will be able to purchase a ticket for £5 and will available at 500 KFC restaurants across the United Kingdom.

“We're really proud of the food we serve, and of all the care that goes into making our chicken taste as incredible as it does,” said Rob Swain, chief operations officer at KFC UK and Ireland. “We want to welcome everyone in to give them the chance to see what makes it so finger lickin' good and invite them to try keeping pace with our amazing team members. We can't wait to show the nation how it's done.”

Customers who purchase a ticket will hand-bread chicken, fry it themselves and build a KFC burger. They will then be able to eat their creation, along with a serving of fries and a drink.

This isn’t the first time KFC has done this – 100 restaurants sold tickets for behind the counter in 2017.
