VAUGHAN, ON, July 2, 2019 /CNW/ - KFC Canada today announced a series of new sustainability and environmental commitments aimed at curbing the company's use of plastics in restaurants across the country.

By October 2019, plastic straws and plastic bags will no longer be used or provided at any KFC restaurant locations across Canada. This effectively removes 50 million plastic straws and 10 million plastic bags from restaurants - and more importantly – landfills, waterways, and the communities in which KFC Canada operates.

"KFC Canada believes in feeding people, not landfills. Reducing the volume of single use plastic within our restaurants ensures we are continuing to lessen our environmental footprint," said Nivera Wallani, President and General Manager, KFC Canada. "Together with our franchisees, staff and guests, we can positively affect the communities we operate in and the health and wellbeing of future generations."

"We are extremely proud to be a part of the KFC Canada family where sustainability and care for the environment are a core part of operations," said Shehzad Janmohamed, CEO, Soul Foods Group - one of KFC Canada's franchise partners. "This critical initiative, and the many more to follow, will enhance the long-term quality of life in the communities we serve."

Earlier in 2019, KFC Canada announced its alliance with KFC's across the globe on a commitment that all plastic-based, consumer-facing packaging will be recoverable or reusable by 2025. This news today marks an important – and proactive step – towards achieving this goal. 


Prince George, BC, June 26, 2019 – For more than a decade, Fatburger
has been one of Canada’s fast-growing and most popular burger chains acclaimed
for serving up award winning burgers, as well as Buffalo’s™ world-famous wings
and tenders, and delicious breakfasts. And now Fatburger fans can now indulge
their taste buds at the second Prince George location at 3167 Massey Drive at
Pine Centre.

“We are delighted to open our second Fatburger in Prince George,” said
Frank Di Benedetto, CEO, president and owner of the FDF Restaurant Brandz
franchise system that includes the Fatburger Canada chain. “Pine Centre
continues to be the local mall of choice and this location is a wonderful compliment
to our original co-branded Fatburger on O’Grady Road.”

Fatburger traces its roots back to the 1950s in Los Angeles when the word
fat meant cool or hip, but the size of burgers led to the distinctive name. “The
name of the store was my idea. I wanted to get across the idea of a big burger with
everything on it . . . a meal in itself,” said Fatburger founder Lovie Yancey.

In keeping with the Fatburger tradition, the new 30-seat location will feature
an open kitchen, allowing guests to order at the counter and enjoy watching their
meals being cooked-to-order. Convenient takeout service will also be available.

What makes Fatburger so special? Premium ingredients. Each and every
burger starts with fresh, never frozen Alberta Angus beef. No additives, binders or
fillers. Only the freshest produce, including hand-shredded lettuce and award
winning centre-cut beefsteak tomatoes, qualify to be served on a Fatburger.

Fatburger’s inspired menu doesn’t stop there. Other delicious options
include chicken sandwiches made with full-sized marinated chicken breasts,
veggie burgers custom-made exclusively for Fatburger, and Buffalo’s™ World
Famous Wings and Tenders. For those seeking a low-carb, gluten friendly treat,
Fatburger offers the option to “Lettuce Wrap” your burger or sandwich.

To complement the chain’s burger selections and other entrees are its “best
anywhere” milkshakes made with premium, hand-scooped ice cream. In fact,
Fatburger has six delicious shake flavours to choose from, plus a seasonal feature

Pine Centre is the second Fatburger in Prince George and the 55th
Fatburger restaurant in Canada, with locations in British Columbia, Alberta,
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories. Fatburger Canada is
Canadian owned and operated and is proud to serve Canadian ingredients.
