One menu item I’ve always lamented the absence of in the KFC menu is chicken & waffles, a southern staple that probably ranks as one of the five or six best dishes ever invented. Now, KFC Chicken & Waffles is being tested out in a few very lucky select markets. Here’s KFC’s Senior Marketing Director on the new product:
“We know that chicken and waffles has a cult following across the country, especially in the South, but not everyone has it available close by … We are always looking to add new menu items, and chicken and waffles is perfect for our next test market product.”
Between June 18th and July 29th, customers in the Asheville, North Carolina area will be able to try KFC Chicken & Waffles for themselves, while Charlotte and Greenville KFC locations will reportedly offer the dish in the near future as well. Hopefully, a wider rollout will follow before too long.
