KFC will open its first restaurant in Uzbekistan in test mode in September 2018, Uzbek media reported referring to the KFC’s press office in Russia.
The representative of the company also noted that Uzbekistan has a serious potential for business development and is one of the important regions for the expansion of KFC.
“Central Asia is one of the priority regions for development of the KFC brand with a serious potential for expanding its business. Until the end of 2018, together with our partner, Food Chain, we plan to open several KFC restaurants in Tashkent, where all the main dishes, including baskets, snacks, sandwiches, etc., will be presented,” the company said.
At the same time, according to the representative of the company, the price policy of KFC in Uzbekistan will be formed taking into account dynamics and market conditions and various other factors in order to preserve the mass availability of food for consumers.
The company also underlined that KFC carefully considers selection of suppliers, focusing on the highest quality products, operational reliability, and compliance with international standards of work.
“We are committed to the supply of chicken and locally produced vegetables and are now actively working with the local producers to build this process. As a safety net, we have the opportunity to import things from Russia to ensure uninterrupted supply in full, which is necessary for the restaurant in Tashkent,” the company concluded.
