Called KFC Halal, it opened up in Tehran on November 1 and immediately shut down by police the very next day.
Locals have called KFC Halal “the first American branch” of its kind, Mashable reports.
“We are shocked with the news that an illegitimate KFC outlet has opened in Tehran, Iran,” a KFC spokesperson told Mashable. “No franchise rights have been granted to any party in Iran. We are in contact with local authorities and external advisers and will be filing a legal action against any company or individuals claiming to have rights to open KFC.”
The American fried chicken chain says they have no affiliation with Tehran’s KFC-like restaurant.
Reckon the chicken tastes the same?
