KFC is a restaurant which created its name on the basis of chicken. and opened many restaurant all over the world and the most interesting thing is this restaurant is all based on chicken and has made customer no doubt of service they provide. Today in the class i studied about marketing strategies and i thought of writing a Blog on this topic

In Canada KFC focuses how geographically its customers demand different products.
In Ontario Chicken is the main selling product, while in the south the Veg. items sell more than the chicken

KFC target wide number of people in canada like when i went to one of these restaurant at fallow field and i discover that from small to old people like the taste of chicken. and due to the effect on fast food of healthiness they have started providing salads to the customers  , since 1970 they have changed their menu with the demand of enviroment.

KFC focuses on pure and fresh food in order to create adistinct and clear position in the minds of customers KFC has a strong brand name and they are leading the market in fried chicken.

-Gender :Both male and females are focused by KFC, gender does not play any role here.
-Household Size: This plays a vital role in the demographic factor of the KFC. Generally they target whole families rather than single persons. This being the reason for their Family Meals which are basically bundled items served at a nominally cheaper rate.

    Very impressing post! Nice job man!


  2. Hi Akash! You have done a great job on Marketing Mix for KFC. The product form, segmentation, positioning and competition of KFC has given me a clear picture of KFC marketing plan and objectives. I believe KFC has done a great job for it to be able to survive on 1 main item only, which is chicken, which is not very good tasting in my opinion, but still KFC has been around for so long, and you have clearly shown why. Thank you for your in depth analysis on KFC.


  3. This article was very clear on the KFC marketing mix. I love the fact that they take customer behaviour into account when they are developing their new products, perhaps that’s why they have been able to keep their customers coming back? I also like that they are keeping up with the healthy trend in many fast food places these days. KFC is offering, what many believe, to be a great tasting product at a family affordable price. Even though their main focus is chicken, I believe that they are maintaing a great marketing mix, as well as continuing to stay in line with their competitors.
