TORONTO, April 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KFC Canada is offering a deal to get excited about: two pieces of perfectly crispy, juicy chicken for only $2.99 on Tuesdays, available across the country. But please, hold the applause, because not everyone’s happy. After decades of passion, dedication and refinement of his Original Recipe, his masterpiece, his 11 Herbs and Spices, the Colonel is *not* down for this deal. $2.99? For chicken? In this economy!?

And if we’re being honest, he’s not wrong. Two pieces of Canadian farm raised, hand breaded, Original Recipe Dark Meat or Tenders for only $2.99 is an unbeatable deal.

In comparison to competitors, this is the best offer on Finger Lickin’ Good fried chicken in the QSR marketplace.

KFC has a history of delivering value deals that Canadians love, especially on Tuesdays. Twosdays was inspired by Canadians’ love of KFC’s original Tuesday offering. The focus of this deal is to deliver on taste and quality at an affordable price. So, while a certain bolo tie-wearing Colonel might not be happy, Canadians sure will be, with unbeatable Kentucky Fried value at a time when people need it most.

But we’re committed to giving Canadians rituals they can look forward to at a value that can’t be beat.”
