KFC’s 1000th restaurant is located in the famous retail market, DLF Cyber Hub in Gurgaon. It is operated and managed entirely by an all-women team and is the brand’s first restaurant in India with 100% table service.

After the launch of the first KFC restaurant in India in 1995, this brand became a part of the life of the people of the country.
