KFC opens first Iranian branch in 30 years

Tehran, Tue, 28 Feb 2012 ANI

Tehran, Feb 28 (ANI): American fast food chain restaurant Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has opened its first branch in Iran despite harsh US sanctions against Tehran over its nuclear programs.


KFC opened its first branch in the country in the Central Iranian city of Karaj in Alborz province.


Amir-Hossein Alizadeh, the licence holder, said it took him five years to get permission from the relevant local authorities to open the branch, The Daily Mail reports.


The franchise was closed in Iran following the 1979 Islamic revolution, due to its affiliation with the enemy country US.


Meanwhile, tensions between Iran and West are increasing amid reports suggesting that the country has significantly stepped up its uranium enrichment programme in the last four months.


Iran last week denied inspectors from the United Nations' nuclear watchdog access to a key military site.


International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors were turned away from a base in Parchin, where intelligence suggests nuclear weapons are being developed. (ANI)
