KFC Changes Its Name to K’ehFC in Canada for Country’s 150th Birthday

A 62-year resident joins the national celebration

Well, this is a goofy stunt, eh?

KFC Canada is honoring Canada’s 150th birthday with the amusing if typographically challenging decision to change its name to K’ehFC for the duration of the summer. The change will be reflected on newly designed buckets of chicken, and you can also see the rebranding on the kehfc.ca website.

The K’ehFC name will also adorn one KFC location—the company’s first-ever Canadian store on 8th Street in Saskatoon, which Colonel Sanders himself sealed with a handshake back in 1955.

“K’ehFC has proudly embraced its Canadian roots for 62 years, from our iconic red-and-white style to our friendly, neighborly presence from coast to coast,” said Stephen Scarrow, senior marketing manager of advertising and media at K’ehFC. “We want customers to feel the same strong appreciation for Canada that we have since 1955. Let’s get this party started!”

Scarrow adds: “Canada Day is about togetherness—for the country, our communities, and for our friends and family, and bringing people together over a bucket of chicken is what K’ehFC stands for,” said Scarrow.
