On Monday I blogged about how KFC was going to try out vegan options on the following day, so Tuesday(yesterday) - and I wanted to give an update!
Yesterday, crowds of customers waited in lines for over an hour at Atlanta's KFC restaurant location on Cobb Parkway in Marietta to sample vegan, Beyond Fried Chicken nuggets and wings. The Cobb Parkway location was painted bright, electric green and even donned a Beyond Friend Chicken billboard. There were crowds of people that wrapped two blocks, and a bumper to bumper drive-thru line that wrapped the building twice! KFC completely sold out of the vegan options in 5 hours with customers buying the equivalent of what the store sells of its popcorn chicken in one week.
I don't know about you, but that sounds like a success! You go, KFC! Go Green!
