KFC to open 100 drive-throughs in China in three years
US fast-food giant KFC will open 100 drive-throughs in China in the
next three years, according to a report in the China Business News.
KFC has just opened two new drive-throughs in Nanjing, capital of east
China's Jiangsu Province, and Wuxi city on 6 July, bringing the number of KFC
drive-throughs in China to four.
The move is aimed at combating the
recent announcement by McDonalds and Sinopec, the nation's largest oil refiner,
to jointly open several drive-throughs around the country.
drive-in store in Nanjing is in cooperation with German retailer Metro AG Group,
a long-term partner of KFC in running drive-in stores, while the other is
located in the new technological development zone of Wuxi city.
the opening of its first store in China in 1987, KFC has run more than 1,200
fast food outlets in China and drive-throughs have become a new market, which
both KFC and McDonald are competing for. (sa)
