    KFC's biggest problem is that their prices are insane. If they cut their prices by around 25% my family would probably eat there ten times more often than we do.

    They charge far too much. They use tough chicken. Their chicken breasts are too chewy and the way they cut their birds is strange. They need to up the quality of their products, lower their prices and provide, clean, pleasant restaurants. The one in my town is still open.

    I haven't been to a KFC in a few years. Ever since they changed their grease and recipe, it just wasn't as good to me. Someone was telling me its gotten better, so one of these days I give them another crack. I like Popeyes a little better, but at times the sodium in their chicken is ridiculous. I prefer frying my own, but I don't always feel like washing dishes afterwards, which makes fast food all so appealing at times.

    Their food sucks. Not just the chicken. There was a KFC with a buffet nearby that closed. I went there once and even their green beans were nasty and greasy. They deserve to go out of business given the piss poor quality of their food.

    KFC under Pepsicola is nothing like the KFC of my childhood.

    Hey, I've got a picture of myself standing outside of the original KFC in Corbin, KY. If I can find it, I'll post it.

    The ones in our area are getting remodeled and combined with Taco Bell.

    Bad food...a lot of these "fast food" restaurants are going out of business because their food sucks...Used to love Pizza Hut, KFC, Wendy's....what they serve now would gag a maggot....

    What about "Church's"...when I lived in Dallas that was some GOOD chicken....

    KFC's are aplenty in my area. I haven't touched their chicken in years but their sides suck. Overcooked, greasy veggies and wedges, yuck.

    I don't remember the last time I went to a KFC. I also prefer Popeye's. I haven't noticed any closing around here. There's one about 3 miles from my house. But they're nothing like they were when I was a little girl. They need to do a major overhaul and get back to basics.

    When I want to eat a chicken leg or breast and have grease running down my arms all the way to my elbows I go to KFC. Otherwise I cook at home.

    I haven't noticed any local KFCs closing, but we eat there so rarely that we probably wouldn't miss it.

    I stopped making the occasional KFC stop when they discontinued the chicken livers. I can do chicken at home so good, quick and cheap I can't imagine buying out unless I was on the road.

    Iam a strong KFC customer.Mine in my area is still open. Of course, their price is high but I like their chicken. No problem. Hi blondie , thank for the link. It was informative. I didnot know that a parent company that owns Pizza Hut also owns KFC.

    Having eaten their food, I can't imagine how this could possibly be seen as a problem. ;) Though, to answer your question, no, I can't say this is happening in my area (to my knowledge). While I can't imagine that market demand actually necessitates this, we have two in my town that don't seem to be getting closed. If they were to close, my mother would have to give up on her wild craving binges where she finishes off a bucket herself between lunch and dinner...

    The ones in our area are getting remodeled and combined with Taco Bell.

    That's actually what's happening to our local Pizza Huts. There's also a combination store of all three in a town not too far away from me.

    I can only hope that Walgreens and CVS get that message...we're exploding with them, and they're always right across from each other on opposing corners.

      Close

      Confirm ...
