History of PFK
KFC was one of the first American fast-food chains that expanded to Quebec. ‘Kentucky Fried Chicken’ in an attempt to remove the unhealthy connotation of ‘fried food’ from their brand name. Later when KFC moved to Quebec, they changed their name to ‘Poulet Frit Kentucky’ which directly translates to ‘Kentucky Fried Chicken’.
Colonel Hartland Sanders started selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in Kentucky. Eventually, fried chicken broke through the monopoly that burgers and sandwiches had enjoyed in the spheres of fast food enterprises and garnered nationwide popularity. Soon they expanded to Canada and established PFKs in Quebec.
How many PFKSs are there in Quebec?
There were almost 14 active branches of KFC in Quebec. However, since last fall the branches have been shutting down, and currently, there is a lesser number of PFKs operating in Quebec right now.
