The fast food giant previously entered the country in past decades.
KFC announced its plans to enter Israel for the fourth time.
Local press reported that the American brand has launched a recruitment drive for staff ahead of a planned reopening. The brand has previously opened and closed in Israel in the 1980s and the ’90s, and between 2003 and 2012.
The most previous incarnation of KFC failed after its franchise owner was allowed to change the company’s signature recipe to go kosher, switching the milk powder in the crispy coating to soy and to use kosher-killed chickens instead of those provided by the company.
KFC operates six outlets in three West Bank Palestinian cities.
