The KFC and Pizza Hut chains will expand by another four units (two KFC restaurants and two Pizza Hut restaurants) to the provinces by the end of the year, announced Carmen Lupuleţ, marketing manager of the two companies that hold the brands. Every new unit will generate a minimum 30 jobs and a maximum 100 new jobs. So far Pizza Hut chain consists of five restaurants in Bucharest and another four in the provinces (Constanţa, Iaşi, Cluj, Bacău). The brand has been brought to Romania as franchise by American Restaurant System. The turnover of the company was estimated in 2005 at EUR 5.5 million. We have to select every city we go to carefully, bearing in mind the population, the purchasing power in the area, and the location itself that needs to be a central area or an area with lots of people. That is why we have opted for malls”, stated Carmen Lunguleţ.
