KFC is world famous for its Original Recipe® fried chicken -- made with the same secret blend of 11 herbs and spices Colonel Harland Sanders perfected more than a half-century ago. Every day, more than 12 million customers are served at KFC restaurants in 109 countries and territories around the world. In Zimbabwe, KFC has been serving delicious meals since 2014 and we are growing year on year to bring restaurants nationwide.
In addition to becoming a Zimbabwe icon, KFC created meals specifically for Zimbabwe like Streetwise with Sadza.
Some KFC fun facts
The secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices was first developed in 1939. The same recipe is still used across the world today.
It really is a secret recipe, locked away in a vault in Louisville, Kentucky. Only a handful of people know the multi-million-dollar recipe and they have signed strict confidentiality contracts. Not even the spice companies that mix the secret blend of 11 herbs & spices know the complete recipe.
Colonel Sanders’ first meals were served to hungry travelers visiting his service station in Corbin, Kentucky in 1930. He didn’t have a restaurant but served meals at his own dining table in the living quarters of the Corbin service station.

We make it our responsibility to ensure the chickens we do source are treated humanely and within the animal rights legislation of the country.
All of our suppliers are also independently audited throughout the year, which helps us and our suppliers ensure that processes and standards are followed.

It's important for you to make informed decisions about the food you eat. So we provide the nutritional information of all our menu items on our website and this information is also available at all our restaurants on request.
