KFC is a small newcomer in the quick-service restaurant market and the only restaurant offering the one thing Italian cuisine does not fry: chicken. Just fried chicken.
KFC's overarching challenge is to make Italian people – probably the hardest target for a foreign food brand – embrace the fried chicken obsession. But we are here to speak about the launch of the Double Down and its hot and spicy version, the Double Down Zinger. This is even a harder challenge. Why? Because Double Down is the epitome of chicken obsession: two slices of fried chicken plus bacon, cheese and sauces.
