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.”
