There are many things that Jamaicans are passionate about, but very few are as prominent as the way we feel about KFC Jamaica. The franchise fast-food restaurant, known for its fried chicken meals has been the go-to place for Jamaicans since its arrival.

The love affair with the finger-lickin' chicken company is so intense that other restaurants often find it difficult to be very successful or even find their footing in the food services industry. Many Jamaicans will tell you that Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) in Jamaica is better than every other restaurant in the world and they will not be convinced otherwise. 

When Was KFC Jamaica Opened?

The company itself started in 1952, KFC Jamaica was not opened until 1975, the first location being 170 Old Hope Road, Kingston 6.

Who Owns KFC Jamaica?

KFC Jamaica is operated by Restaurants of Jamaica, a company owned by the Myers family. The company also has the right to operate the Pizza Hut franchisee on the island as well. In most cases, you will find a Pizza Hut and a KFC Jamaica at the same location barring a few.

Does KFC Jamaica Use Jamaican Ingredients?

As you know, KFC has 11 secret herbs and spices that must be used at every location no matter where they are. So those ingredients are not locally sourced. However, everything else is sourced in Jamaica.

How Many KFC Jamaica Locations Are There?

Jamaica has 41 KFC locations in 12 parishes as well as 14 Pizza Hut Locations in 7 parishes. St. Thomas and Hanover remain the only two parishes that do not have a single KFC restaurant.

Their recent additions have been an additional location in Drax Hall, St. Ann, Falmouth, Trelawny, Port Antonio, Portland and Junction, St. Elizabeth.

Surprisingly, Negril does not have its own KFC, making it the only major tourist area that does not have one, there are usually no less than 3 in these areas. So, if you happen to be in Negril, you will have to drive to the closest KFC location in Savanna-la-mar which is just a taxi ride away.

There are still plans to add even more store locations to better serve the island.
