KFC Opens in The Bronx

The new store features a mobile pick-up area



KFC made its urban home in New York’s Bronx with a new design reflecting the location’s vibrant and fast-paced atmosphere. The Louisville, Ky.-based restaurant teamed up with FRCH Nelson (Cincinnati) to create a “playful juxtaposition” between southern hospitality and the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. This contrast is highlighted by the combination of different materials and finishes, such as warm wood accents and industrial exposed brick.

Bright and energetic signage runs throughout the space, boasting “it’s finger-lickin’ good,” in classic KFC fashion. This new location offers flexible seating arrangements and ordering options such as bar seating and a mobile order pick-up area to keep up with New York’s “on-the-go” culture. This store is part of a collaborative strategy to connect KFC with its consumers through non-traditional formats.

Strategy needs creative, and creative needs strategy—yep, having both is really the only way of unifying all disciplines with a common vernacular with an eye toward building a strong creative vision that is foundational to the processes. Hear from Bevan Bloemendaal, former VP, Global Environments & Creative Services at Timberland, how to connect the dots between disciplines, claiming and creating a clear differentiation for the brand and ensuring that any asset (experience, product, ad, store, office, home, video, game) is created with intention.
