"Extending our presence in city centers is one of the 2020 objectives - says Corrado Cagnola, CEO of KFC Italia - 30% of our new openings this year will be in urban centers and having arrived in the heart of Catania is therefore for us particularly important for this too. Sicily is confirmed as an extremely receptive region towards our brand, which is already present with 4 restaurants, 3 of which are in the Catania area, and is therefore strategic for our development. "

The new Catania Spirito Santo restaurant is franchised to Idea Food s.r.l. The Sicilian company, which has been operating in the restaurant sector for years, also manages the KFC restaurants of the Porte di Catania Shopping Center, Centro Sicilia in Misterbianco and Corolla Park in Milazzo.

"Bringing Colonel Sanders' irresistible fried chicken closer to people is a goal we have set ourselves with this new opening in Catania, in the heart of the city - say Francesco Bianco and Salvo Zappalà, Directors of Idea Food s.r.l. - In Sicily, KFC products are highly appreciated, together with the experience that is lived in our modern and welcoming restaurants. And with our fourth opening on the island, we employ 46 people, mainly from the area, and we are proud to bring 150 jobs that we have created so far in the Catania area for the KFC brand. "

The restaurant covers an area of approximately 270 square meters and offers 46 seats in the lounge and 52 in the outdoor area. It is open 7 days a week, from 10 to 24 and until 1 on Saturday. In the restaurant there is free wi-fi and charging stations for electronic devices.
