The American fast food chain restaurant Kentucky Fried Chicken has (KFC) has denied reports it has opened a branch in Iran.
Last week, Iranian news media reported that the first Iranian franchise of KFC had been opened in Karaj and more outlets were soon to be opened in Tehran and other major cities in Iran. The so-called licence holder, Amir-Hossein Alizadeh said it took him five years to get the permission from relevant local authorities to re-open KFC in Iran, due to KFC’s affiliation with the US, which was Iran’s political arch-enemy.
KFC issued a statement warning it would sue anyone taking advantage of the KFC brand in Iran. The fast food chain added it had no plans to open restaurants in Iran.
