Fast food chain KFC announced its intention to hire about 120 workers in Italy by the end of 2015, for its two new restaurants in Genoa and Rome. The company business plan foresees investments for about 100 million EUR. The chain will open about 100 new outlets in Italy over the next five years, focusing initially on Northeast regions, Latium and Campania. Therefore, the number of vacancies is expected to have a boost soon. KFC opened its first restaurants in Italy in 2014, in Rome, Turin and Chieti (Abruzzo).
