It all started when a local news agency published (before retracting) a report that KFC was launching the first of several Iranian restaurants “with the goal of creating 20,000 jobs.”
Amir Hossein Alizadeh, who is the owner of the so-called local “KFC franchise,” said he had spent five years working on obtaining permission “from the mother company” to open a restaurant in the city of Karaj.
