Fast Food Giant KFC Increases Market Share in Kenya

Fast food giant KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) seeks to expand their hold on Kenya’s fast food industry with a new outlet in Village Market. They will now have 21 outlets in Kenya, most of which are in Nairobi county. Kuku Foods East Africa, the KFC local franchisee, announced plans to continue investing heavily in expansion over the coming years.

They plan to open five more outlets in Kenya, one more in Uganda and their first in Rwanda by the end of next year. KFC’s growth in the region signifies the potential of the fast food industry in the region.


Growth of fast food industry in Kenya

This rapid growth of the fast food industry in the region is as a result of the shift in population demographics and fast economic growth leading to increased disposable income. This basically means that there are a lot of young people with money to spend.

The youthful population in Africa is set to double by 2050. If the economic growth in the region remains stable, more global fast food giants will seek to take a bite of this market. This is already evident as other fast food retailers such as Cold Stone Creamy, Sandwich Chain Subway among others have expressed interest in the region.

Another factor aiding the rise in the demand of fast food is their ready to go nature and delivery model employed by most outlets. They’ve developed an elaborate traffic flow strategy with proper Drive Thru Markings to make it easy for customers on the go to buy from them. Most young people in Kenyan University hostels or even those at work but yet to start a family prefer not to cook and fast-food offers them an alternative. A company like KFC makes tens of thousands of deliveries in a month.

Truth be told, fast-food is very delicious and can be very addictive. This is one of the reasons why people just can’t quit it despite the health implications. Those who have had a taste of real fast food can relate. Nothing beats having that nice bucket of crispy chicken wings and bottle of ice cold coke delivered to your door step for movie night.
