When it comes to fine dining for Valentine’s Day, KFC wouldn’t show up on anyone’s radar, and for obvious reasons. However, the UK branch of the chain is hoping to change that perception by offering a date night table service.
The experience will reportedly include tables dressed with linen napkins, silver candelabras, vases of flowers, and a soft drink sommelier. It will also take place at their at Fishergate restaurant near Preston in Lancashire – considered their most “romantic” location because it served as the meeting spot for a couple that has now been married for 44 years and still visit for weekly date nights.
This is how KFC is selling it:
“A spicy zinger burger is all you need for love at first bite and our table is perfect for any hot date this Valentine’s Day. Our date night table offers diners the finest window seat with an exclusive view of Fishergate High Street, a perfect setting for our finger lickin’ good chicken.”
Finger lickin’ lonely is probably a more realistic outcome. Hey, while you’re at it, why not treat your lady to some Doritos roses?
But if I’m wrong, and the if the experiment proves successful, the company plans to roll out the service across the UK.
