“We ain’t got no chicken”

March 12, 2018

Finally, I can tell one of my favorite stories.

A couple of weeks ago, due to a “supply chain issue”, KFC ran short of chicken at many of it’s UK stores.

That’s a problem since:

1) The UK is KFC’s 5th biggest market – accounting for about 6% of company sales.

2) KFC is shorthand for Kentucky Fried CHICKEN !!!

That’s a big problem.



OK, here’s my story ….


What has 8 legs and 6 wings?

June 2, 2015

Answer: Definitely not a Kentucky Fried Chicken.


When I heard a news blurb talking about KFC genetically raising chickens with 8 legs and 6 wings, I bought in.

I figured: smart move.

Kids devour drumsticks and wings are still one of the hottest bar foods around.

My thought: good operations move … improve the “yield” from each chicken.

Turns out that my read wasn’t the story at all …
