This opening is important, because it consolidates the presence in Southern Italy, a strategic area for the development of the brand in our country, and which coincides with another significant result. With the opening in Marcianise, KFC now has 40 restaurants in the area.

"We are very pleased to reach the goal of 40 restaurants in Italy in Campania - declares Corrado Cagnola, CEO of KFC Italia - In the southern part of the country, we already have 2 restaurants in Campania and 3 in Sicily. This is a territory that sees us particularly committed to the development and dissemination of the brand. A path that allows us not only to get closer and closer to an audience that loves our products but also to continue to make our contribution to the economic fabric of the territory and to offer new employment opportunities. Since we arrived in Italy 5 years ago, we have employed 1,400 people, something we are proud of ".

The KFC restaurant of the CC Campania of Marcianise is managed by the 2K16 franchise, which already manages the Pompeii restaurant.

"We are very happy to bring the irresistible KFC chicken, which Colonel Sanders' fans can already enjoy in our Pompeii restaurant, to the province of Caserta - states Antonio Laiena of 2K16 - With the new restaurant in Marcianise we expand our presence in Campania , a region in which we have been operating for a long time and which is very much appreciating KFC products. And we are proud to bring new employment opportunities to the Campania region. With the Marcianise restaurant we have created 40 new jobs for young people between the ages of 18 and 26, for whom a professional growth path is envisaged that will recognize the merit of the people, as it is in the spirit of KFC ”.

The new KFC restaurant in the Campania Shopping Center is large and welcoming, with a total area of over 580 square meters and about 180 seats are available. It also includes services such as free WiFi and charging stations for mobile phones and computers. And, last but not least, it also welcomes pets. The restaurant is open every day from 9am to midnight.
