KFC has opened a new kind of outlet in China, dedicated to providing its customers with healthy and fresh food, rather than the typical “eight-legged chicken” fare.
The fast food branch launched its first K Pro restaurant in Hangzhou on July 1st. According to Yicai Global, diners will have menu choices like paninis and salads topped with grilled chicken breast, South American white shrimp and smoked salmon. To drink, the restaurant offers fresh juice and beer.
Meanwhile, the interior design of the shop has been changed to reflect the food on offer, creating more of a relaxed cafe vibe, while staff are dressed in green rather than KFC’s customary red-and-white.
For the past few years, KFC has been using China as a testing ground to explore new ideas, such as robots that will scan your face and tell you want to eat.
