Supply chain services company McLane announced that two Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) regional franchisee associations presented the company with their respective “Vendor of the Year” Awards for outstanding service and overall performance.
The Southern California KFC Franchisee Association honored the McLane Riverside team for its excellent day-to-day performance, and for their heroic effort in continually supplying fresh chicken during KFC’s free meal giveaway announced on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Additionally, this KFC franchisee association recognized the flawless transfer of business to McLane in 2009, a move that involved 145 KFC locations and 50 of the Southern California KFC Franchisee Association’s members.
