KFC to debut Beyond Fried Chicken nationwide

The QSR is partnering with YouTube star Liza Koshy to launch the plant-based “Kentucky Fried Miracle” on Monday.

These developments made industry news in 2021 but expect to see them surge into bigger trends next year.

But this time, the fried chicken chain is giving customers who buy a firelog, or who order on its app, a chance to win a stay at a "KFC Firelog Cabin."

The limited test of the iconic D.C. area product is designed to introduce more customers to the sauce around the country.

The chain’s new sandwich and fries have given the company a big lift this year. But it’s been helped along by its buckets.

Customers place an order online, park in a dedicated spot and then grab their order from a pick-up shelf inside.

The company is giving away “Finger Lickin’ Chicken Mitten Bucket Huggers” to customers who buy buckets of chicken Tuesday through Thursday.

The chief executives of McDonald’s, Yum Brands, Starbucks and others all said they have big advantages amid a historic shortage of workers. They might be right, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The Nintendo of America executive will lead marketing for the chicken chain.
