KFC, the world’s most famous fried chicken chain, is teaming up with The Phnom Penh Post to give our readers a mouthwatering offer.
Redeeming the special coupon in The Post will get readers 20 per cent off either the Family Set 1 or the Signature Box.
The Family Set 1 consists of five pieces of chicken, coleslaw, whipped potato and a 1.5 litre bottle of Pepsi. The Signature Box contains one piece of chicken, a Zinger burger, whipped potato, a regular portion of French fries and a can of Pepsi. Both are available either hot and spicy or original.
The offer applies for delivery only and lasts until July 31.
With the chicken used in KFC Cambodia’s restaurants breaded on the premises and all ingredients conforming to halal standards, Stephanie Tang, the general manager of Kampuchea Food Corporation, which runs KFC operations in Cambodia, says the company’s continuing success is in part down to a strong emphasis on customer satisfaction.
“We connect, we ask for feedback, we show appreciation and we communicate. Key to any good relationship, communication is an essential way to guarantee customer satisfaction. Our customers expect great products and service from us, and by doing this we exceed their expectations,” Tang told The Post.
And it’s not only the quality of its food and the satisfaction of its customers that concerns KFC. The company takes its responsibility to its employees seriously, Tang says, with it committed to giving them opportunities for promotion via its Career Advancement Programme.
“Soy Socheata began at KFC as a restaurant team member, and now she is the restaurant manager of the Boeung Keng Kang branch in Phnom Penh. Many of our managers at KFC have started off on the restaurant floor, myself included,” said Tang, a KFC veteran.
Boasting 22,621 locations in 150 countries as of the end of last year, KFC came to Cambodia in March 2008, with the first restaurant situated along Phnom Penh’s Monivong Boulevard. Having expanded to 12 restaurants catering to fried chicken lovers across the Kingdom, KFC Cambodia currently employs more than 200 members of staff.
There are currently nine eateries in the capital, with outlets also in Siem Reap, Battambang and Sihanoukville. Another restaurant is planned in the coastal city by the end of the year.
Founder “Colonel” Harland Sanders opened a restaurant in North Corbin, Kentucky in 1930, during the Great Depression. Ten years later, he finalised his “Original Recipe”, with the first “Kentucky Fried Chicken” outlet opening in 1952.
From humble beginnings, KFC is now the world’s second largest restaurant chain by sales after McDonald’s.
Despite being world renowned for its secret recipe using 11 herbs and spices, KFC continues to excite with its regular releases of innovative new flavour combinations – with the Korean-style Soy Garlic Glazed Drumette the latest in the series.
“We are bringing new tastes for Cambodians to enjoy every 30 to 45 days, depending on the availability of ingredients,” said Tang.
The new addition to the “Finger-Lickin’ Good” menu is proving particularly popular as part of the “One Box” meal, which consists of six items – drumettes, a Zinger burger, fried chicken, coleslaw, whipped potato and a drink.
“Each Soy Garlic Glazed Drumette is heavenly glazed in an intricate and masterfully crafted sauce, made from spices, garlic, soy sauce and other secret ingredients, then blended to perfection to assemble a juicy fried chicken with a crispy outer shell, coated with a sweet and savoury sauce of goodness.
“The dark glazing sauce and fried chicken is a match made in heaven, a combination of savoury and sweet, a combination of cultures, Western food meets Asian spice,” KFC Cambodia said of the new offering on its release.
As well as its creative innovations, the fast-food giant also regularly offers a range of discounts, with customers since Monday and for the next two weeks enjoying 20 per cent off orders placed with Food Panda.
So with KFC refusing to rest on its laurels by continuing to innovate while focusing on customer satisfaction, the Kingdom’s fried chicken lovers need to keep an eye out for its delicious new taste sensations and regular offers.
To get the Family Set 1 or Signature Box offer, please mention The Post promotion when placing your order on the KFC free delivery hotline – on 070 896 000 or 023 996 000 – and hand over the coupon from the newspaper on payment.
