New Delhi, July 2018: He is feisty, he is entertaining, he is unapologetically confident and now he is in India!

Founder of the world-famous Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), none other than the iconic Colonel Sanders has finally set foot in the country and fans cannot keep calm. The Colonel took out time to meet a few lucky chicken lovers in the National Capital last month. He was also seen exploring the city during his India visit and was spotted at the iconic India Gate by excited fans who rushed to click selfies with the legend.

KFC India recently opened the gates to KFC Land taking fans across the country by a storm. The brand hosted a celebratory evening in honor of Colonel’s visit to India and to give consumers an exclusive experience of KFC Land – the land of the tastiest chicken in the world! Bringing alive nuances of the Land, the evening saw Colonel meeting excited KFC fans, select consumers and his special Crew; enjoying finger lickin’ good food and sharing commandments of the Land; ending the evening on a celebratory high.

Sharing his excitement on KFC Land and bringing Colonel Sanders to India, Moksh Chopra, Director Marketing, KFC India said, “What makes KFC stand out is our finger lickin’ good food; nobody makes chicken like we do. With KFC Land, we wanted to ensure our communication was as unique as our food. Isn’t it fascinating to imagine a land full of chicken-lovers, that is united by its citizens’ love for chicken? That’s what KFC Land is – our new communications platform to communicate the KFC Brand story in an interesting, distinct way. Over the months ahead, you’re going to hear about our new launches, activations, offers and all other brand initiatives through this platform. And of course, we kickstart this by introducing chicken lovers in India to our founder, Colonel Sanders.”
