Do you remember when Popeye’s launched its chicken sandwich back in 2019? It took the internet by storm and ignited the Chicken Sandwich Wars. Fast food giants from all over the country battled for the title of Best Chicken Sandwich. While the battle continues to intensify, there is one clear winner in all this, chicken sandwich fans. If you are one such fan, there is great news for you. KFC has announced its new Chicken Sandwich, and the company is calling it its best Chicken Sandwich Ever!
KFC held nothing back in the development of its new Chicken Sandwich. The new Chicken Sandwich features a quarter-pound, all-white meat, double-breaded, Extra Crispy™ chicken breast filet with thicker, crispier pickles and your choice of either Colonel’s real mayo or spicy sauce; all sandwiched between a buttery brioche bun. To ensure that you are getting a fresh, hot sandwich every time, each Chicken Sandwich is made to order.
KFC wanted fans to know that this new Chicken Sandwich was playing to win, and so no stone was left unturned in the development. KFC partnered with six different bakeries on more than ten recipes to find the perfect bun for its new quarter-pound, all-white meat, double-breaded, Extra Crispy™ chicken breast filet. KFC even tested eight thickness variations for its pickles to ensure that the new Chicken Sandwich was made perfect.
After a successful launch in Orlando, Florida, in 2020, KFC is now ready to roll out its new Chicken Sandwich to the masses. Andrea Zahumensky, chief marketing officer, KFC U.S.said in a press release, “Many customers hadn’t considered KFC as a part of the chicken sandwich conversation, but anyone who tastes this sandwich will know, without a doubt, that we’re playing to win.”
While KFC’s new Chicken Sandwich isn’t available nationwide just yet, the company plans to roll out its new Chicken Sandwich at all local restaurants nationwide by the end of February 2021.
