KFC in Kenya serves customers ugali after running out of imported potatoes
It was this day that the normal KFC in Kenya which is always there with chips ran out of it. It is the Chrismas day celebrations and New year day celebrations that saw it run out of the French fries and this made them to apologise for the public.
The KFC in Kenya which is known to serve only chiken and chips turned to serve different tastes to it’s customers and among them was the Kenyan staple food Ugali, coleslaw,snacksburn and other drinks.
Addressing the public KFC in Kenya said:
Fam it was truly a Furaha December. Mlikula sherehe with your KFC faves. Ya’ll loved our chips a little too much, and we’ve run out. Sorry! Our team is working hard to resolve the issue. In the meantime here are some SWAP options for combo meals if you are craving our Kuku.
Angry Netizens speaks:
Traveling along Eldoret Nairobi road , many of our Kenyans women are selling potatoes.why can you just support them rather to importing.
Kfc standards want long potatoes to make long chips. Kenya doesn’t have those
But why can’t you buy potatoes locally, I can supply you a bag at 3250/- DM I get you the same on Wednesday. You don’t need to bring potatoes from another country

Would they import when it’s available locally? Why all that expense and transportation hurdle really if they were available?

N y can’t u guys buy our local potatoes,tafadhalini n mjue pia tunameza susia hizo chipo zenu mbili
You guys need to sort out your house very fast, coz your current fries suck, they taste like these normal fries that we r nomally abused with outside here, infact, they r tasteless & look funny.
Nimeskia manimport waru!!!…hivo ndo nimeboycot this brand
Kwani viazi ziliisha kinangop na pale molo au mau summit ? Their is a guy who used to supply potatoes to one of the restaurants I used to work for and he used to slice and he met quality standards and restaurant specitications.
This will be the end of you!
You expect Kenyans to support you while you source for frozen potatoes in the US and Chicken in SA?
If it’s Kenyan support,then it must be BUY KENYAN BUILD KENYA..
Rethink your decisions……
Ati “The reason we cannot buy local at the moment is all suppliers need to go through the global QA approval process and we cannot bypass that even if we run out to ensure that our food is safe for consumption by our customers” – The CEO, KFC
This explains the really terrible greasy normal non KFC type fries I got on Sunday 26th Dec at Lavington. The outlet should have explained when ordering that I would be be getting the usual KFC fries and I only found out when I got home.
I get my chips along Moi Avenue… hizi za KFC kumbe zinatoka Egypt?
It ain’t a joke. Even Macdonald’s in Japan are in the same boat.
If you can’t buy from our local farmers we then pray hard you continue being out of stock..
It’s time we do it at home
Interesting. There are plenty of potatoes in Nyandarua County. Why not contract farmers to produce your standards? Or you MUST import from Egypt and SA?
Why don’t you buy potatoes from parents and parents in laws of your customers? Many including my parents struggle over where they can get market for their potatoes. Yet I’m a return customer for KFC. Buy from them and save me money to buy more from you. Economic growth.
After the incident that happened to KFC in Kenya, it has come clear that the fast food company has been importing potatoes and not buying locally.
Angry Kenyans had to point out the KFC in Kenya and hwo knows what might happen?
