KFC closes all shops in Botswana

It is with sadness that we as VPB Propco – franchisees of the KFC business in Botswana – announce that KFC Botswana will cease operating during the course of the next week, with all stores closed by June 5, 2016. Such a step is always, for us, a final resort, and during the course of the last 12 months, we worked tirelessly to seek an alternative.

After much deliberation, however, it is clear that it is no longer feasible to continue operations.

We will therefore close our doors in all 12 branches across the country. After having called Botswana KFC’s home for over 20 years, and with five years under VPB Propco, we thank Batswana for the incredible family which we have built together and for their unwavering support.

VPB will continue to engage all stakeholders, adhering to all regulatory and governance guidelines, and working with all employees through this time. This is by all means a truly difficult business decision to make, but one that needed to be taken.

VPB Group remains an industry leading business with a focus on adding value to its stakeholders. We assure all that we will continue to invest in nurturing competitive investments for our clients and towards the growth of Botswana.

KFC Africa statement

KFC Botswana can confirm that our restaurants are in provisional liquidation. We are working closely with the provisional liquidator to keep the business open so we can continue to bring our customers the great taste of KFC they know and love. The current disruption in operations may however unfortunately lead to the temporary closure of some of our restaurants. – mmegionline.
