“Go home or adjust!” Do you back KFC’s strong stand?

Colonel Harland Sanders is no doubt rolling in his grave, the founder of KFC, who created one of the most successful fast food empires in the world based on a unique branding concept he created in the 1940’s, by masterfully promoting a carefully guarded “top-secret original recipe which includes a blend of 11 herbs and spices and which is kept in a vault…that’s right “a vault!”

However, all that iconic promotional branding which has endured for over 70-years might all come to an end because of a group of Muslims who what the Colonel’s famous fried chicken to include halal foods.

The campaign calling on KFC to serve halal food is gaining traction in New Zealand, thanks to a Facebook offensive on social media which includes the Islamic dietary requirements across the nation, with more than 2,000 likes in little more than a month.

However, not all those individuals on social media are in favor of bringing ‘HALAL KFCs Back In New Zealand,’ with the page dividing opinions saying they shouldn’t have to ‘fit in with the rules of your country.’

The movement is being led by Syeda Fouzia, who said the process of delivering halal food ‘is not that difficult.’

‘We’ve had some criticism, but having halal certification will only mean more people will be able to eat at KFC. It won’t affect non-Muslims,’ UK-born Ms. Fouzia told reporters.

However what seems to be missing in all of this is KFC’s iconic branding within the fast food industry and whether it might actually affect its business model around the world, in that the entire concept of KFC is its branding persona of it’s carefully guarded “top-secret” original recipe which includes a blend of 11 herbs and spices.

However, Ms. Fouzia has gained a lot of support online asking why the simple transition can’t be made to include “halal KFC?”

“Just like to point out KFC is a multi-national fast food corporation, it has about as much cultural bearing on New Zealander’s way of life as Tacobell,” one person said.

But not everyone was having it from the bully Muslims:

Fortunately, KFC has no intention of caving in to the demands of these pushy Muslims.

‘We appreciate their request, however, the issues relating to us being able to certify halal product for customers remain,’ said a KFC a spokesperson.

‘We have no plans to re-introduce halal in New Zealand.’

Well, there you have it. Nice job KFC!

Do you believe a company like KFC should be forced to change its iconic branding image?

    Good for KFC! If we went to their country, we’d need to adapt to their culture, and foods. Believe me they would not make any changes for us. So they need to deal with this, or don’t eat there. End of story!

    If they want their halal food let them open their own eating places and make their own chicken their way. No body wants to see them coming anyway. KFC should never change their recipe for this nonsense. They are really just looking for a way to launch a lawsuit and get money from a settlement.

    Way to go KFC! Of they don’t like it, they can go someplace else! They try to change our laws too and want us to allow their Islam beliefs. Only thing about their belief that they don’t tell you is that they can kill non-believers! And it’s okay for a husband to beat his wife. That goes against our laws of abusing and assaulting someone if they don’t believe in or do something they want us to do and take a stance against it, whatever the disagreement could have been about. Do you know we had a judge appointed , by whom, I don’t know, that said an Isalam woman had to obey her husband and let him beatthe her up? Well, he got demoted and is no longer a judge. My point is that they are trying to take over our country and make it their country! I think they either need to revise the terms of their religion to reflect what our laws allow, or else we should just not allow their so-called “religion”. It’s a religion that shows hate and violence and should be left in the country they came from.

    If these muslims want Hala food then they should open up their own Hala Restaurant and serve whatever they want to serve…providing they can be successful pushing their products. Any business, especially American restaurants, should not have to conform to a few muslims that are rude, obnoxious and demanding. We do not want to cater to Muslims in this country or before you know it they will outnumber everyone and will only serve Hala in their plans top take over America. Muslims are the most intolerant group of people in the world and America will never change into something they want it to be.

    What about the animals that are left to bleed to death? Not humane! But of course, the muslims own quran calls for violence and death to those that do not follow the words of a pedophile that just wants to justify his molestation of little girls and boys. A culture that NEEDS to be eradicated from the face of this earth!
