Public to fork out more for KFC

The public's love affair with KFC is about to get tested again as prices on some favourites have increased. 

Checks on KFC's website shows that a snack pack is now $30 up from $28, a dinner special is now $47 up from $44 while an eight-piece mega meal is $125 up from $119.

In 2014, KFC issued a release announcing a 10 percent price adjustment on selected menu items. 

There was no release announcing the new increases which were said to have gone into effect on Monday. 

Calls to relevant personnel at Prestige Holdings went unanswered. 

The increases aren't sitting well with the public who have taken to KFC's Facebook page to vent. 

"Why is KFC so expensive? Did the chickens attend college?" asked one person. 

"Nothing would make me happier if u drop back the prices....right now i have to by pass kfc like how ppl does be driving pass d police with speed," said another.
