The KFC concept, complete with its winning taste and satisfying experience, was brought to the MENA region by Americana Group. From one restaurant in Kuwait which opened on the 25th of September 1973, the franchise rapidly grew with more restaurants opening their doors in the country and in KSA,UAE, Egypt, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Iraq, and Kazakhastan. Now generations in the region have grown up with the amazing taste of KFC that Colonel Harland Sanders created back in the 1930s.
Americana is one of the Middle East's most successful group of companies operating consumer foods, restaurants, and food-related products. This amazing success story started in Kuwait in 1964 with the establishment of a small trading company that opened its first restaurant (Wimpy) in 1970. Today, Americana Group operates more than 1,480 outlets and has more than 63,000 employees across 12 countries from the Atlantic Ocean to the Caspian Sea.
