Sounds like somebody got tired of overpriced chicken, and shiatty pizza.

Pizza Hut and KFC is International Food!! Really? That's their first impression of international food. I understand and I don't blame them.

Actually sounded like an interesting thing to read about, too bad the linked story doesn't actually provide any details other than exactly what it says in the headline...

I have nothing to say. I was thinking about commenting about the Maoist rebels. I was thinking about commenting on the international influence of companies in the spirit of the Space Merchants.

I think that I actually have nothing to say but can only shake my head.

I can only imagine that the branch managers in Nepal started acting with the self-importance, aristocratic disdain for workers, and desire to cut any corner to make a buck (or rupee) that characterizes many American branch managers. The staff happened to be smarter than Americans and stopped it before it stuck.

Whenever I pass through Kathmandu whist traversing the silk road, I always crave a Pizza fried in oil.

The Chinese really, really love fried chicken. That is probably why it was targeted.

FTA: "some staff have physically attacked and threatened to kill the senior managers"

I fail to see how this differs from U.S. KFCs + Pizza Huts

It's not so much that they love fried chicken, but that they love KFC, and that is mostly because KFC was the first American restaurant to really venture into China. They even beat McDonald's to it.

I was just in China but I didn't try the KFC.

Now, that's when you know you've pushed your wage grunts too far. We needed some of that shiat in the dives I worked in as a kid.

We get our news blurb about KFC and Pizza hut in Nepal from an Aussie web site that is posting an AFP blurb?

Anyway, more informative link:

Something about unionizing ...

Bingo, exactly what I thought. They are trying to suppress a union, so they are shutting up shop long enough to do it.

PETA was in Cambodia. That's as dumb a mistake as mixing up the Dead Kennedys with Bob Seger

Thanks for the kind words.
Your username brought a smile to my face.
25 years ago, I actually paused banging my girlfriend when I first heard the report of SN1987a on CNN.

Chinese KFC is so much better than American KFC, it's like it's not even the same restaurant. The big reason they're successful is because they're the first chain that figured out that they needed to tailor their menu to local tastes. The interesting thing is that I was talking to a Chinese classmate about how in China she eats KFC all the time, but while she's in America she never does because it's not as good and she prefers Burger King in the US.

Oh, and because KFC sells their "Orleans Style" chicken in China, which is really popular because it's spicy, you can go get chicken wings on a stick from street vendors that are "Orleans" flavor. As in, the influence of KFC is such that it's actually influencing Chinese street food.

Well, yes. Chinese food is international food to us, but what do they call it in China? Just "food"?

And from all accounts, KFC is Nepal is damn delicious. I know of Nepali people who came over to the states who were delighted to see the same KFCs around here, but were severely disappointed by the drop in quality. Here, it's junk food and cooked as such, but over there it's considered luxury dining - and cooked as such.
