In 1973, the business partners of Jaycees incorporated Prestige Holdings Limited (PHL) into T&T and then launched the first KFC in St. James.
Simply put, the demand for the KFC product was astounding! Opportunities to expand the franchise and develop the brand rapidly followed. KFC Grew to 15 restaurants and was soon acquired by Pepsico International. Under Pepsico, the brand was enhanced in the areas of Marketing, Finance, Training and HR Development. At that time many innovative methods were also employed to maintain KFC's leadership in the QSR industry.
KFC introduced the concept of the drive-thru service in 1980 and became the first market among Caribbean and Latin-American franchises to launch the now local favorite, Hot and Spicy Chicken.
