Nation’s oldest KFC rebranded for Canada 150

In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, the country’s oldest KFC restaurant—which has operated on 8th Street in Saskatoon since 1955—is being temporarily rebranded with a new sign reading, ‘K’ehFC.’

The name change, which will be in effect throughout the summer, extends to newly designed buckets available at all 610 locations across the country, an updated website and online giveaways through social media channels.

KFC founder Colonel Harland Sanders ‘sealed the deal’ for the chain’s first Canadian restaurant himself with a handshake, just a few years before he moved to Mississauga, Ont., where he collected Canadian franchise fees for his charitable foundation.
