KFC’s Beyond Fried Chicken Test Sells Out In Less Than Five Hours

Today’s KFC plant-based Beyond Fried Chicken limited test at the chain’s Cobb Parkway restaurant in Atlanta sold out in less than five hours.

Chew Boom can report that fans were lined up around the restaurant starting at 8 a.m., with double-looped drive-thru lines.

The test proved to be a winner, with fans purchasing the same amount of Beyond Fried Chicken in five hours that the restaurant would normally sell in popcorn chicken in a week.

KFC plans to evaluate today’s results along with fan feedback to determine the best way forward beyond the Atlanta test – potentially a larger test and/or national rollout.

Today’s test included Beyond Fried Chicken nuggets served with a choice of dipping sauce, and boneless wings tossed in one of three sauce options: Nashville Hot, Buffalo or Honey BBQ.
