August 25, 2021

This Kentucky Fried Chicken brings an enhanced brand presence to the Bergamo province and 20 new jobs

MILAN, 25 August, 2021 -- Kentucky Fried Chicken is bringing its fried chicken to even more fans in the province of Bergamo! The new restaurant, opening on 27th August in Dalmine, will be the fourth restaurant for the brand in the province of Bergamo, along with those in Cumo and Oriocenter, and the second restaurant with a drive thru. 

5Roosters srl manages the Dalmine restaurant as a franchise for KFC, together with those of Curno, Oriocenter and others in Lombardy, for a total of 9 Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants.

"We are very pleased to increase our presence in a territory so rich in activity, and which has shown, since our first opening in the area, a great appreciation for Colonel Sanders' fried chicken,” declares Filippo Caravatti, Managing Director of 5Roosters srl. “Above all, we are proud to create 20 new jobs with this opening and to therefore make a concrete contribution to this area.”

Dalmine brings KFC Italy to 49 restaurants in the country, ranging across 13 regions from Friuli to Sicily.

The new restaurant has a capacity of 120 in the lounge and 30 in the gazebo and offers drive thru service. In the dining room, it is possible to order independently through the kiosks, which allow maximum comfort and safety in the product selection phase, and to use the click and collect service through the KFC Italia App. 

The Dalmine restaurant has been developed in the most recent local KFC style: minimal, with finishes like wall cement effects, exposed ceiling and dark gray floor, which is accompanied by the warmth of wood for the coatings and furnishings and graphics on the walls that feature the Colonel and other iconic elements of the brand with a pop style. The restaurant features cozy environments, and dynamic and international flavor, where all customers can feel welcomed and enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

The restaurant will be open from daily from 11:30 to 23:00, unless otherwise specified by national and local authorities, due to the Covid emergency.


KFC, a company of the Yum! Brands Inc., boasts a history full of success and innovation. It all began over 75 years ago thanks to Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of the brand. It was he who invented the Original Recipe, the recipe that contains an inimitable secret mix of herbs and spices, still prepared today and typical of the brand.   

Every day in the more than 24,000 restaurants in more than 145 countries, KFC cooks prepare the chicken on the spot, working it by hand and carefully following all the steps, from breading to cooking, to obtain a fragrant and irresistible product. Yum! Brands Inc. also includes the Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and The Habit Burger Grill brands. With more than 50,000 restaurants in over 150 countries, Yum! Brands is one of the largest restaurant companies in the world. KFC arrived in Italy in 2014 and, with the Dalmine opening, has 49 restaurants in 13 regions. www.kfc.it
