KFC opens new retro 24-hour outlet in Klang


Nowadays, we have plenty of conveniently-located fast food joints to choose from. But for a crispy piece of fried chicken straight out of an ubiquitous bucket, KFC – or Kepci to locals – is where most of us head to without a second thought.

Besides their pops menu offerings like fried chicken and Zinger burgers, KFC’s new retro-themed outlet that opened yesterday, 18th April 2021, in Klang, will dish out an authentic 50s-style diner experience to visitors.

Judging by the retro diner seats and an oversized KFC bucket to welcome guests at the entrance, this spot seems inspired by old-school fast food joints in the United States. Here’s what to expect if you’re heading down soon.


New outlet is a throwback to old-school KFC outlets 


KFC outlets typically take on pretty standard fronts – a monochromatic outline of Colonel Sanders’ face and the Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) acronym emblazoned on red and white-striped signboards.

But their new outlet in Klang is a throwback to old-school fast food chains from the 1950s. Inspired by art deco-style fast food chains in the US, the eatery is housed in a standalone building with large windows reminiscent of vintage drive-through restaurants.

The gigantic fried chicken bucket centerpiece – which lights up at night – will be hard to miss, if you’re strolling around Bukit Raja, Klang where the outlet is located.

We spotted four-paneled “diner” doors, and vibrant oblong windows that allow guests a sneak preview of staff hustling within.

Although KFC’s 3-letter initials are featured prominently, the brand’s previously-known name, “Kentucky Fried Chicken” is also showcased in full, mounted as 3D letters in a stylised manner.

Retro diner seats and art deco finishes


Within the outlet, you’ll find swanky car seat-inspired booths at KFC Klang’s new premises. This is most likely a throwback to the rising popularity of drive-ins and drive-throughs in the past.

A neon sign bearing KFC’s full name also adds to the retro ambiance you’ll find inside the store while you’re munching away on fried chicken and sipping on soda.

The ordering counter here also gives a nod to the past, ditching the familiar red counters for ones that blend into the rest of the retro-themed store with splashes of gold and more rounded edges.
