LOUISVILLE, Ky.--()--In honor of the 60 million (and growing) citizens of Grilled Nation who have tried KFC’s new Kentucky Grilled Chicken™, KFC issued a letter to the United Nations Secretary General requesting that Grilled Nation “earn a seat” at the international organization’s table. The letter also requested that Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon call a special one-hour lunch break so that members of the UN can “UNThink” their usual lunch routine and try new Kentucky Grilled Chicken (KGC).
“The coast-to-coast success of Kentucky Grilled Chicken has proven that America really does have good taste”
To expand the population of Grilled Nation, the world renowned KFC Colonel is sampling new KGC for all UN employees and visitors on First Avenue, across from the UN, with KGC branded street vendor carts. At 60 million strong, KFC’s Grilled Nation is the equivalent of the 24th largest country in the world and represents nearly 1 percent of the world’s population.
Grilled Nation Declares Monday, October 26 “UNFry Day”

“The coast-to-coast success of Kentucky Grilled Chicken has proven that America really does have good taste,” said Javier Benito, executive vice president of marketing and food innovation for KFC. “We hope that the United Nations recognizes the growth of Grilled Nation as proof that 60 million people deserve some delectable international diplomacy. And that UN employees deserve a break for a KGC lunch.”
60 Million (and Counting) in Times Square
To showcase the population growth of Grilled Nation, this week KFC is launching a digital billboard in Times Square in New York City which will track the growing number of people who have tried Kentucky Grilled Chicken. The billboard is located on 7th Avenue between 49th Street and 50th Street.
KFC is also recognizing Grilled Nation with a new Web site, www.grillednation.com, which will allow KGC fans the chance to recruit new citizens and set up their own Grilled Nation embassies where their countrymen and women can enjoy KGC’s strong GDP – good darn poultry.
