Staff certainly plays a role in how they execute the methodology of the business...I've just never seen a KFC francise that executed it ...to my liking anyway. The chicken is always greasy, and too salty...not to mention it's hard to find skin that has "bite through" much less crispy! It usually comes completely off with the first couple of bites...Popeyes is not always perfect...On a couple of occasions I've not been pleased with their product either...However 99% of the time, they hit a home run ~~ KFC certainly has name recognition, and the reputation with 15,000 + locations world wide.

I was just stating what I had been told (and didn't claim more than that). I don't know if this guy worked at a KFC restaurant or somewhere else in the company.

It's everyone's conversation, so you're not barging in.

Thanks for posting it. It generated a good deal of discussion. Now we know how a number of members feel about KFC.

I got suspicious because the recipes were not for restaurant quantities, just one or two chickens. Also, of course, because secret recipes are secret.

I used to love kfc gravy so much that I quit making my own. Whenever I wanted gravy I bought it from kfc. But over the years it has changed until now it just tastes like wallpaper paste. So sad.
