Who we are
KFC Global brings finger lickin’ good fried chicken to the world. Our team members can be their best selves, make a difference and have fun – all while serving chicken and delighting customers at more than 29,000 restaurants in 150 countries and territories. There’s room for all people and voices at our table. Pull up a chair.
Done the right way.
"There’s no such things as strangers, only friends we haven’t met yet."
Since starting with 11 herbs and spices, the Colonel’s Original Recipe has grown KFC from a single restaurant into a globally iconic brand. But we're more than just makers of delicious fried chicken. We're believers in doing things the right way. From donating food, to protecting our planet, to upskilling and creating opportunities for underprivileged communities, we're committed to making a difference, however we can.
Our unrivaled people and culture are the true heart and soul of our brand. It’s how our People Promise comes to life every day. It’s why our employees can be their best selves, make a difference and have fun.
#1 Be your best self
Bring your energy, spirit and spice to work, every single day. Because being yourself and being celebrated by others is a recipe for success.
#2 Make a difference
What you care about, we care about too. From putting smiles on faces to impacting the local community, everyone has the chance to make their mark here.
#3 Have fun
We're all about livin' life to the fullest. Laughing loudly, smiling often and never taking ourselves too seriously. KFC dull? Never.
Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
We foster an inclusive culture where everyone is welcomed and valued. Every day, we work with active allyship at our core, and ensure our teams reflect the communities we serve.
Some places call them Employee Resource Groups. At KFC, we call them Communities of Belonging. Helping employees feel seen, connected, supported and empowered, these groups are open to all KFC employees globally.
KENTUCKY FRIED PRIDE
Kentucky Fried Pride is dedicated to supporting and celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community and its allies, creating a true sense of belonging for all.
SHINE is dedicated to strengthening representation, empowering women at every level of leadership and providing transformative development opportunities and experiences.
Shaping the future
Our buckets might be red and white, but we're getting greener by the day. From forest stewardship to sustainable packaging and animal welfare, we're taking action to do more for the planet. And with 29,000 restaurants (and counting), it's our responsibility to keep KFC growing sustainably, with Mother Earth in mind. Which is why our goal of becoming a net-zero business is a no-brainer.
Every 3.5 hours, a new KFC restaurant opens somewhere around the world (pretty crazy, right?). We must act responsibly and ensure that we build with purpose so our brand can have a positive impact for decades to come. To reach our net-zero carbon commitments, we've adopted our Building Green Standards. From energy and material efficiency to water conservation and waste reduction, we're limiting environmental impacts our restaurants have on the planet.
Small changes make a big difference. And we've got some big goals that we're striving to reach, all in the spirit of doing our bit for the environment. From our commitment to eliminating non-reusable plastic packaging by 2025, to sourcing even more responsibly by globally transitioning to 100% cage-free eggs by 2030, we’re moving towards a more sustainable KFC, every single day.
