The chicken wars are starting to heat up again, just in time for the warmer weather. After a very successful limited test run in 2019, Kentucky Fried Chicken® has announced that it is bringing the coveted, always hot, Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts to hungry consumers nationwide.
KFC is opening a pop-up shop called “The Colonel’s (Chicken &) Donuts Shop” for one day only in Los Angeles on Saturday, Feb. 22, in the donut capital of the world. The Colonel’s (Chicken &) Donuts Shop, which will be located at 615 North La Brea Avenue, will open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., serving strictly Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts. The first 50 customers in line at the shop will receive a free Colonel’s Dozen, a mouthwatering mix of six KFC Extra Crispy™ chicken tenders and six glazed-to-order donuts. Guests can RSVP here and walk-ups are welcome!
“Chicken & Donuts is the newest fried chicken trend we’re bringing to all of America,” said Andrea Zahumensky, chief marketing officer, KFC U.S in a press release. “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.”
KFC and donut fans can experience this finger-lickin’ sweet and savory meal in a variety of options ranging from $5.49 to $7.99:
- Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts Basket meal: chicken on the bone or Extra Crispy™ chicken tenders, paired with one donut. Also available as a big basket meal, which includes two donuts.
- Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts Sandwich: a juicy, hand-breaded Extra Crispy™ chicken filet sandwiched between two fully glazed donuts.
- Guests can satisfy their sweet tooth by adding a donut to any meal for an additional cost.
KFC’s chicken and donuts bring together a delicious pairing of KFC’s world-famous fried chicken, coupled with a warm, fresh-glazed donut. Beginning Monday, Feb. 24, Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts will be available at participating restaurants in the U.S. for a limited time only.
They will be available nationwide through March 16, or while supplies last.
