Create jobs by being a 'Colonel' of your own store

KFC Philippines is giving investors – even those who have no solid experience in running a quick-service restaurant (QSR) -- the opportunity to be the “Colonel” of their own KFC store via its innovative franchising scheme.

KFC Philippines, under its franchising program utilizing all available tech innovations and safety and ease, will handle the full operations of the store, thus, assuring entrepreneurs a hassle-free management experience while enjoying the full benefits of franchise ownership.

This also gives the KFC sub-franchisee a higher level of confidence that the store is maximizing its potential as it will be supervised according to the company's world-class standards daily.
