KFC expands footprint in Nigeria with new outlet in Ikoyi

KFC Nigeria has opened a new outlet in Ikoyi, Lagos. The new store located at the NNPC Mega Station, Alfred Rewane Road, Ikoyi, will provide finger lickin’ goodness to residents of Ikoyi and environs.

In his speech at the launch, Manish Mehra, the company’s business head, remarked that opening a new outlet in the middle of a global pandemic is a clear testament that KFC brand is here to stay and it signifies their strong belief in the Nigerian economy.

“We are excited about this new store opening and partnership with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), as it marks the beginning of our relationship with the apex body to further drive retail expansion. This also showcases our unflinching support for the Nigerian government’s job creation drive as we engage numerous Nigerians in our daily operations,” Mehra said.

“Since its entry into Nigeria in 2009, KFC has been well received by Nigerians of all categories and this outlet forms part of our efforts to make the brand more easily accessible to our Nigerian consumers,” he said.

Damilola Owolabi, lead, sales and marketing, said KFC Nigeria is an innovative brand with varieties of meals and had just recently launched its yam fries called ‘Yamilicious’ to add to a bouquet of products that include 5-in-1 meal box, Popcorn Chicken and several others.

KFC Nigeria now has 23 outlets spread across Lagos, Ibadan, Enugu, Ilorin and Abuja, with plans to open more branches in more cities before the end of the year.
