KFC includes Zinger sandwich to value meal
Dubai, May 2, 2013
Kentucky Fried Chicken has announced the introduction of its new lunch treat meal, now including the Zinger sandwich, due to popular demand.
It comes following a movement supported by 9,818 fans on an independent Facebook page, a statement from KFC said.
The move started with a few posts on various websites where KFC fans expressed their love for its meals and asked for the new lunch offer. Few posts turned into 35, spawning a Facebook page created by the people who started inviting friends to like and post similar requests for KFC to include the Zinger Sandwich in their meal.
The management was overwhelmed by the requests and posts that it decided to offer the top-selling Zinger sandwich as part of the value lunch menu for two weeks, the statement said.
Fans expressed their love and respect for KFC for listening to them but most were disappointed that it was only available for two weeks, it said. That ignited a flurry of new posts by fans asking KFC to keep the offer for longer, with yet others asking for it to be made permanent.
KFC has been following up on the post and decided to act upon them. It then announced that the Zinger sandwich would become part of the value lunch menu permanently.
At the moment the new lunch treat meal which includes two pieces of chicken, a Zinger sandwich and fries is a permanent item on the menu, the statement said.
Following the success of that drive, KFC customers are now also calling for the return of the “All You Can Eat” meal. They have already launched a Facebook page, and are gathering likes and sharing posts, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
