(Ecofin Agency) - Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), the fast food restaurant chain that specializes in fried chicken, opened its first restaurant in Abidjan, Marcory commune, yesterday April 23.

This project is the result of a collaboration between the company and Vivo Energy, Côte d’Ivoire-based company active in Shell-brand oil products distribution.

Ivorian company Coqivoire, one of the regional leaders in the production of meat and poultry products, will be KFC’s commodity supplier.

This step from KFC is subsequent to the entry into Côte d’Ivoire’s market of its compatriot Burger King, implanted since 2015 with the support of Servair, world’s third-largest in aviation catering.

Let’s recall that KFC was founded in 1930 in Corbin (Kentucky) by Colonel Harland Sanders. To date, it has more than 20,000 restaurants in 128 countries around the world and is part of Yum! Brands group, the world's leading restaurant caterer.
