They Might Be Closing The Only KFC Buffet In Canada And People Are Pissed
Even the premier of the province is upset. Update: KFC Canada released a statement saying that the buffet will remain open "for now."
In the Saskatchewan town of Weyburn there is a KFC where you can pay a reasonable amount of money and partake in an all-you-can-eat buffet of fried chicken and all the fixins, amen and god bless the prairies.
It really exists!
But there is trouble afoot for what is often described as North America's only KFC buffet*. Reports say the parent company of KFC, Yum Brands, wants to shut down the buffet. Now even the premier of Saskatchewan is speaking out against the plucking of the Weyburn dirty bird buffet.
Leonard Free of KFC Canada, released a statement to say the buffet will remain open "for now."
"This afternoon, KFC learned that our buffet in Weyburn, Sask., was closing," he said. "Like many people, we were surprised by this news. We can confirm the buffet is not closing.… While we cannot guarantee that the Weyburn buffet will remain open forever, we can guarantee that it will be open for now."
