India KFC Splits Veg Orders

Due to protests, KFC franchises in Ahmedabad, India will have separate counters and uniforms for veg diners.


As KFC expands in the heavily vegetarian nation of India, it is modifying its restaurants’ practices to accommodate customers who do not eat meat. As the chain has prepared to open a new franchise in the western state of Gujarat, it will have different uniforms, counters, and cooking areas for veg and non-veg orders in attempts to assuage religious protests from locals, many of whom object to the company’s meat-heavy menu and lack of concern for animal welfare. Local resident Manish Shah tells India’s Economic Times, “Ours is a moral protest against KFC… We feel that KFC is a hardcore non-vegetarian store and is not in alignment with the culture of the residents living nearby.”
