reporter WHY DID KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN CHANGE ITS NAME TO KFC?

Ilomkcbm

In 1991 when the fast food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken
changed its name to KFC, it was suggested at the time that
this move was in response to a study carried out by the University
of New Hampshire that proved that real chickens
weren’t being used in the food.

Instead, so the story goes, genetically modified animals with no beaks or feathers were being used in order to save on costs Because of this, it was
said, government regulations dictated that such mutated
animals could not be marketed as chickens and so the company
was force to omit the word “chicken” from its name, as
well as from advertisements and menus This, of course, is a myth

Cgjcshjp

No such study was undertaken and the claim has no
basis in fact


There were a number of genuine reasons behind the
name change One was to lessen the emphasis on the word
“chicken,” because the company was at that point providing
a more diverse menu, while another was to remove the word
“fried,” which had unhealthy connotations for increasingly
health-conscious consumers.

A third reason was the growing trend of major companies to shorten their names and to use only initials As most people referred to the company as
KFC anyway, it seemed only logical to embrace the name.

You might call that chicken but if it is it's no chicken that I would ever eat. You become what you ingest and that's nasty.

Kentucky doesn't really resonate in parts of the world...er...outside of the south...er...outside of kentucky.

KFC is very popular in the middle east (oddly) probably because everything is somewhat localized. Some of the stuff is the same (like wraps) but I'm guessing the flavoring is different on the similar stuff. I recall this from business school but that was a long while ago so the information might not be correct.

Because it's cheaper to make the signs/logos. 3 letters is much cheaper than the complete words,....
