KFC brings the heat to Cape Town with pop-up Kentucky Town


FROM July 7 to 17 2022 KFC will be reopening the doors of its popular Kentucky Town pop-up, but this winter KFC brings all the goodness to Capetonian fans. For 11 days only – in honour of its secret recipe – Cape Town KFC lovers can join in the “finger lickin’ good” fun at Kentucky Town based at Canal Walk.

KFC’s marketing director Grant Macpherson says, “Kentucky Town is all about celebrating the best of KFC with KFC’s greatest fans. So, this winter the pop-up will bring the heat with an exciting new limited-edition menu, new limited-edition winter drip, hot new experiences and back by popular demand, more of KFC’s famous sauces.”

The limited-edition menu will include some of the most-popular items from the original pop-up store such as the Doughnut Zinger Burger and Spicy Chips flavoured with Tabasco, but KFC will be turning up the heat even higher with a stack of new and exciting limited-edition items. To pay homage to the city and culture of Cape Town, the menu includes the limited-edition KFC Gatsby as well as KFC Chachos (like Nachos), Simba crunch Zinger Wings, Kentucky Fried Oreos and a Midnight Mojito to seal the deal. The pop-up will also be selling Zinger Sauce and Dunked Sauce to home.

Stylish gentlemen can prepare their beards and moustaches for the limited release of The Colonel’s Beard Oil inspired by the secret 11 herbs and spices recipe, and for die-hard KFC fans, KFC’s 11 Herbs and Spices Fire Logs will be on sale so you can cozy up to the famous finger lickin’ good aroma all winter.

KFC will also be introducing new winter gear including limited stock of The Colonel’s Onesie and KFC PJs in addition to long sleeve vests, tracksuit pants, hoodies, and winter accessories. All proceeds from the pop-up’s gear will be donated towards the KFC Add Hope initiative to help continue to provide nutritious meals to underprivileged children in South Africa.

Serving up plenty of feel-good fun at Kentucky Town and with various chances to win prizes, you can explore and enjoy various pop-up activities. The Zinger Heat Lounge with gaming consoles, free wi-fi and interactive screens will create an awesome chill zone and offers gaming fans the chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to Comicon Africa as a guest of KFC. Fans can make their own “Colonel Yourself” Tees, have fun in the giant KFC Bucket booth, blend their own 11 Herbs & Spices secret family recipe or participate in the KFC HOT AF Wings Challenge on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays at 11am or 3pm for another chance to win.

KFC will also be opening its online pop-up store, for certain purchases. To keep up with the latest Kentucky Town Cape Town action follow any of KFC’s social pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok) and track all the activity on the hashtag #KentuckyTown. More here.
