How to Open a KFC


How to Open a KFC. Colonel Sanders started his finger-lickin' good fried chicken restaurant more than half a century ago. Now his 11 herbs and spices tickle the pallets of patrons in more than 82 countries. Currently owned by PepsiCo, Kentucky Fried Chicken franchises are popping up in almost every city. Franchisee qualifications are specific and strict.

Meet the financial requirements for opening a KFC franchise: liquid assets of $360,000, net worth of $1,000,000, franchise fee of $25,000, royalty fee of 4 percent, and required capital of $1,100,000 to $1,700,000.
