Let's Meet at - KFC

Reviewed by Matt Neale, joint MD, GolinHarris.

I look forward to visiting 'The Colonel', as Lynne Franks might a Mayfair Michelin-starred tasting menu. I know it's a treat, but hey, I'm worth it.

Despite the current mania for international fusion cuisine, KFC signature dishes such as the Tower Burger and the Colonel's Meal somehow still feel fresh. I know of one head of comms who can't resist the three-piece combo meal with baked beans and a large cob.

Some of the larger restaurants boast a downstairs, ideal for more intimate post-work agency bonding sessions or that clinching candidate interview.

Seriously though, for a quick bite with a client between meetings, KFC takes some beating. What's more, friendly banter with your server may well be rewarded with a superior cut of chicken breast, so it pays to be polite.

If any of your guests are fussy eaters then you can tailor the meal around their needs. No dairy? Simply ask staff to remove the mayo and cheese.

Tours of the kitchens are not usually offered, but most of the cooking is done 'open house', so you can see the executive chef at work.

The menu can change, so it's worth popping in for any seasonal specials or deals. Currently, you can 'go large' for just 30p. What procurement officer wouldn't respect such smart agency behaviour?
