We are pleased to announce that KFC has recently extended its partnership with HAVI Germany until 2022. We are proud of the contribution that we have made to KFC’s growth in the country since we started serving the business in 2015. Working behind the scenes, we have helped it to attract more business by freeing it to focus on its core strength: ensuring all its guests enjoy their unique KFC taste experience. We value the opportunity to continue in this role for another three years.
As part of the U.S.-headquartered Yum! group, KFC is among the top 10 global brands in the system catering sector. It has operated in Germany for over 50 years and currently runs 174 restaurants there. They are all supplied by HAVI’s eight German locations, with the Rheinberg site in North Rhine-Westphalia acting as the central hub.
“We are delighted to support KFC’s continued growth with our professional supply chain services,” says Christian Harupa, Senior Director, Customer Management and Global Account Management, HAVI Logistics. “Especially our one-stop shopping concept. Providing an order, a delivery and an invoice for all products frees KFC from many background activities. This smooth supply chain allows the customer to fully focus on its growth and core business: its guests in its restaurant. “
“The well-being of our guests is our top priority,” adds Marco Schepers, Managing Director, KFC, Germany. “Although the processes in the background are not visible to the customers, they are enormously important to us. HAVI supports us in many logistical areas and makes a valuable contribution towards ensuring all our guests enjoy their unique KFC taste experience. “
HAVI’s contract with KFC covers the entire procurement process for all food and non-food products plus storage, transport and delivery in three different temperature zones as well as personal customer service. HAVI also serves KFC and Yum! in several other countries across Europe and Asia.
We look forward to reinforcing our partnership with KFC in Germany by continuing to support it with consistently high standards of quality, safety and service across its supply chain.
