The Hottest Din­ner Tote This Sea­son: KFC Canada Fam­ily Din­ner Box

A Deli­cious and Con­ve­nient Alter­na­tive to the Iconic Bucket



Get a han­dle on din­ner with KFC Canada.  For the first time in more than 50 years, the Colonel is offer­ing an alter­na­tive to KFC’s world famous bucket ¾ a styl­ish, easy-grip din­ner box that serves four.






The new KFC Fam­ily Din­ner Box arrives in stores on March 19, 2012 — and caters to the whole family’s taste buds. Now, KFC Canada fans can pick and choose from an array of sig­na­ture sand­wiches and wraps, famous Orig­i­nal Recipe chicken, Mini Breast Fil­lets and an assort­ment of sides to cre­ate four cus­tomized meals all in one box! As an added bonus, the KFC Canada Fam­ily Din­ner Box is com­pact, easy to carry, and includes free pop­corn chicken for sharing.


End­less Pos­si­bil­i­ties in One Box

“Our new KFC Fam­ily Din­ner Box is all about offer­ing vari­ety to fam­i­lies,” says Tatiana Car­ras­cal, Senior Mar­ket­ing Direc­tor, KFC Canada. “The abil­ity to cus­tomize meals means that the whole fam­ily can enjoy time together and their own per­sonal KFC favourites – with no com­pro­mises.  It’s a com­plete fam­ily meal that’s com­pletely up to you.”


Chose from five main items includ­ing KFC famous sand­wiches, wraps, and Orig­i­nal Recipe® chicken and four clas­sic sides ¾ the din­ner com­bi­na­tions are end­less!  Adven­tur­ous flavour seek­ers can savour a hot and spicy KFC Zinger® chicken sand­wich with a side of zesty coleslaw, while purists can enjoy two pieces of Orig­i­nal Recipe® chicken and tra­di­tional fries – and the kids can munch on juicy, ten­der, white meat Mini Breast Fillets.


Only in Canada

Car­ras­cal says the KFC Fam­ily Din­ner Box is mak­ing its first North Amer­i­can debut in Canada – after block­buster sales and suc­cess in Aus­tralia, where it was recently intro­duced. Cur­rently, KFC Fam­ily Din­ner Box is not avail­able south of the border.


While Car­ras­cal expects the new Fam­ily Din­ner Box to become a pop­u­lar menu addi­tion in Canada, she says the iconic bucket is here to stay.


“The bucket is a true clas­sic – it’s orig­i­nal, just like KFC.  Noth­ing pleases a crowd like a bucket of fresh, deli­cious KFC Orig­i­nal recipe® chicken and KFC’s Fam­ily Din­ner Box is a new twist on a favourite clas­sics that cre­ates more options for vari­ety and con­ve­nience when you have four to feed.”


Bucket Back­ground

Orig­i­nal Recipe® chicken was first per­fected and intro­duced by KFC founder Colonel Har­land Sanders more than 50 years ago in Corbin, Ken­tucky. The famous 11 herbs and spices recipe remains a secret to this day, hid­den in a high-security, top-secret vault located in Louisville, Kentucky.


When it was first intro­duced in 1957, the KFC bucket became an instant pack­ag­ing clas­sic that rev­o­lu­tion­ized take-out din­ing. Since then, the trade­mark red and white KFC bucket has been embraced by coun­tries around the world.


The new KFC Canada Fam­ily Din­ner Box is avail­able for both take­out and deliv­ery at par­tic­i­pat­ing KFC loca­tions across Canada.   Visit to find the KFC near­est you.
