ISRAEL: KFC fails to realise potential, operations close
Dor Energy, the Israeli firm which has just concluded the acquisition of the fast food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken, has decided to freeze operations at four of the chain's six branches in Israel, including the biggest one on King George Street in Jerusalem. A report in Haaretz adds that Kentucky Fried Chicken, which started operating in Israel in 1993, "had not realised its potential in Israel," according to Dor Energy president Dudi Weisman. He added that his company would look for a new strategic investor, and that the fastfood chain would be integrated into the commercial facilities at Delek Alon and Dor Energy gasoline stations.
