ANGOLA – KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) has expanded its presence in Angola with the opening of a new store in the municipality of Viana.

The store, located on National Road 230 in the upward direction after the Municipal Command of Viana, has created employment opportunities for 35 residents in the district.

Demétrio Sepúlveda, the administrator of Viana, officially inaugurated the new KFC store on a Friday, as reported by the local administration on Facebook.

The establishment has brought both direct and indirect jobs to the area, contributing to the economic development of the municipality.

KFC entered the Angolan market in 2012 and has since established a strong presence. The new store in Viana adds to the existing nine KFC restaurants in Angola, with eight located in Luanda and one in Benguela province.

Known for its signature fried chicken, KFC emphasized the use of fresh and quality ingredients.

“The chicken is marinated and breaded on-site to ensure maximum freshness, all while adhering to the original recipe that has been a hallmark of the brand for over 70 years,” the company said.

“The expansion of KFC in Angola reflects the brand’s commitment to providing its popular menu offerings to a broader audience and contributing to the local economy by generating employment opportunities.”
