Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Botswana says it is embarking on a five-year expansion plan that will see the company broaden its operations at both commercial and community level.
KFC Principal Operator, Wynand Pretorius, recently told the media in Botswana that in addition to increasing the number of outlets, the fast food chain will also source their ingredients from local farmers and producers.
He said that the company has been also initiating a number of corporate social responsibility activities around the county as well as supporting Childline Botswana and the Bill and Melinda Gates home for AIDS.
“In the past 20 years, we have grown with the Botswana market, and there is a large demand for our products and this is an opportunity for us to play bigger role in the community both financially and socially,” said Pretorius.
Furthermore, he stated that KFC is also doing market development strategic plan to look at the whole of Botswana, particularly the urban areas where they are likely to open new outlets.
He added that in the next 12 months, they are expected to develop new stores in Gaborone and one additional opening in Francistown.
