On November 23rd, Consul General Amb. Philip Reeker participated in the opening of the eighth KFC – Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Italy this year, at suburban Milan’s Assago shopping mall. KFC expects to open 14 more restaurants in the next few months.
The Assago KFC (sharing a vast parking lot with a thriving McDonald’s) is open 24/7, immediately employing over 70 new workers (young, educated , and very diverse–reflecting the changing population demographics in Milan’s periphery).
Consul General Reeker joined the CEO of KFC Roger Eaton, the KFC Italy CEO Corrado Cagnola, as well as the Mayor of Assago, Graziano Musella.
