To bring finger-lickin’ good fried chicken to every Filipino, KFC is now inviting entrepreneurs to be part of the iconic KFC legacy as pioneer franchisees. This is KFC’s first time in its decades-long operations in the Philippines to partner with local investors, bringing its world-famous flavors to more corners of the archipelago.

A History of Chicken Crafted and Fried to Perfection

Colonel Harland Sanders made history when he gave Kentucky a taste of his original fried chicken recipe back in 1940. Since then, KFC has grown into over 21,000 restaurants across 130 countries, becoming one of the most iconic brands in the world.

KFC opened its first Philippine store in 1966, bringing its signature “11 secret herbs and spices” chicken recipe to Filipino taste buds. The brand has since expanded into more than 300 stores today. With its famous Original Recipe chicken formula and signature gravy, KFC has innovated and diversified its menu through the years, creating dishes like the popular, no bread sandwich, Double Down and no dough pizza, Chizza.
