YOU DECIDE WHO WINS
Vanessa Wong wrote in Businessweek, “The days when fried chicken was synonymous with a certain white-haired southern gentleman are over, at least in the U.S. A new champion has claimed KFC's long-held chicken retail crown:Chick-Fil-A.”
CFA has only about 1,780 retail outlets while Kentucky Fried Chicken dwarfs them with almost 4,500. But CFA is beating KFC by almost a 3-1 margin in sales as of 2014. CFA is primarily located in the Southern US so their “footprint” is more limited … and remember they are closed on Sundays, so they are spotting KFC an entire sales day.
