KFC NZ is open Christmas Day
What's Good
What's Good

KFC is open on Xmas day if you'd rather smash wings than roast, but is your local on the list?

I always knew that the Colonel was Santa in disguise!

While most of us will already have a solid plan for what our Christmas lunch/ dinner might look like, there’s always the potential for something to go wrong with the glazed ham in the kitchen - I’m looking at you, mum.

Or maybe you’re just looking for a bit of convenience to be able to skip the whole cooking process altogether! There’s absolutely no judgement in wanting to spend a lil extra time with your loved ones this holiday szn.

Well, now there’s no need to stress about a backup plan because Santa, I mean the Colonel, has pulled through, and KFC will be dishing out their delicious fried chook all day.
