Tibet to see first KFC outlet

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) will open its first chain outlet in Tibet's capital Lhasa by the end of January 2016 as China gave a rare access to an American business firm in the closely guarded Himalayan region, where foreigners need special permission to visit, said a PTI report.

The US-based brand signed a contract with a shopping mall in downtown Lhasa, capital of the region, to open the first restaurant in Tibet next year, Chen Biao, a manager with the Lhasa Shenlishidai shopping centre was quoted as saying by the state-run Xinhua news agency.

KFC plans to build a 4.67-hectare frozen storage area in the suburbs of Lhasa to prepare for further expansion in the region. "Before KFC chose to enter Tibet, we already had some fast food restaurants such as Dicos. The consumers in Tibet accept fried chicken and hamburgers well," Chen said. Dicos is a Chinese fast food restaurant. There are hardly any foreign businesses in Tibet, added the PTI report.
