LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — After creating a consumer frenzy with a limited run test in 2019, Kentucky Fried Chicken® announced today it is bringing its coveted, always hot, Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts to fans nationwide.
Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts brings two all-American classics together, a delicious pairing of KFC’s world-famous fried chicken, coupled with a warm, fresh-glazed donut. Beginning February 24, Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts will be available at participating restaurants in the U.S. for a limited time only.
Like the nationwide debut of Nashville Hot Chicken in 2016 and Chicken & Waffles in 2018, KFC is once again bringing the latest rising fried chicken trend to the masses with the introduction of Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts. This latest pairing has gained so much popularity, acclaimed chefs have started opening entire concepts around it. But people outside of major U.S. cities haven’t been privy to this delicious combination, until now.
“Chicken & Donuts is the newest fried chicken trend we’re bringing to all of America,” said Andrea Zahumensky, chief marketing officer, KFC U.S. “But not just any donut would do. Only a donut that’s glazed-to-order and served piping hot every single time can stand next to our hand-breaded fried chicken. It’s a finger lickin’ good dish filled with glaze and glory.”
