KFC is shifting its design strategy to go more upscale ... hard plastic seating, bright primary colors and old menu boards have been replaced with high, open ceilings, glazed tile floors, padded booth seating, upscale tables and chairs -- all in a Tuscan color scheme of gold, rust, blue and brick red.
KFC recommends that there be no crate damage that would allow injury to birds ... transport crates should not be over-filled and enough space should be provided to allow all birds to lie down.
With inflation, we're asking people to spend more money on food and we want to give them the environment they want. We want it to be a nice experience for them.

The way they snort for breath, it's so cool, it sounds like a giant fart! So enjoy the ride, guys. Oh, almost forgot the unloading policy. Following unloading, the unloading area, if possible, must be filled with broken gates, sharp edges or other impairments that could cause injury. Use the impairments to poke or prod, whack over the head or abuse in any way that you see fit.
