Award winning illustrator Megan Bird who describes herself as a “maker of things, a raiser of children, and a great high five giver” launches her limited edition KFC bucket for KFC’s Add Hope this week.
As children, our imaginations can make any small moment big, but when we grow up, we forget the big our small can do. “The R2 contributions to Add Hope impact so many children, on such a basic level: a nutritious meal, “ says Andra Nel , KFC Marketing Manager Brand & Purpose. “But we also wanted Megan to celebrate the childlike idea of hope, and the unlimited meanings it holds for different people, as we have seen in our recipients over the years.”
Megan’s themes included exploration, learning, bravery, fun and creativity.
“South Africans have contributed so much, and this limited edition bucket for the festive season, is not only a thank you, but also a continued message of hope for all that we can achieve together,” says Nel.
About KFC South Africa
KFC has been in South Africa for over 52 years and has over 1300 stores across the country. The first KFC restaurant to open in South Africa was in 1971 in Orange Grove, Johannesburg. KFC is the leading Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) brand in South Africa, with just under a third of market share, according to Brand Image Tracker. KFC serves more than 20 million customers a month, and we work hard to ensure that no matter which of our restaurants they walk into, they will get that distinctive KFC flavour and have a great experience. KFC’s Original Recipe® Chicken was first made by Colonel Harland Sanders in 1940 when he perfected his secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices at his restaurant in Kentucky. Today, KFC is the world’s most popular chicken restaurant, still preparing our chicken with the Colonel’s secret recipe to his exact standards. Every KFC restaurant follows the same global processes and procedures to make sure that our customers get great tasting food, every time.
