Principal Operator of the KFC franchise in Malawi, Hamza Tayub said in an interview with Nyasa Times that, in addition to the in-store seating, the Lilongwe shop will have a ‘drive thru’ service – the first ever for any fast food operator in the country.

“This store has been custom built and is the latest fusion concept KFC design which will include a ‘drive-thru’ service, the first ever in Malawi. Customers should expect highest quality and a full range of products that is also available in Blantyre at a very competitive price,” said Tayub.

A ‘drive-thru’ service allows customers to order, pay and collect their food from the comfort of their cars.

“We have met international standards set by KFC in terms of store design, fixtures and fittings, ingredients and training. Our staff was originally trained in South Africa and the rest of the staff have been trained according to the KFC standards,” said Tayub.

He said the Lilongwe shop will be opening from 9am to 9pm with the ‘drive-thru’ service closing at 10pm from Mondays to Thursdays while from Fridays to Sundays opening times will be from 9am to 11pm with the drive-through service running up to midnight.

Why should government reduce load shedding cos of kanyenya wa KFC? They must have generators apa palibe chonyadira ayi dzina ndikumva apa ndi la mmwenye osati Mmalawi ayi. Zikanakhala kuti business imeneyi ndi ya Mmalawi bola. Amwenye achita exploit anthu a Mtundu wathu for a very long time.
