KFC's menu prices change with no set frequency and without prior notice. The price changes depend on factors such as labor costs, ingredient availability and competitor's prices. Customers should check their local KFC franchise for the most current prices.
Large chain restaurants such as KFC may sign contracts locking in prices for certain ingredients. If they do not have a contract in place, an increase in vendor costs can increase the menu price. Food costs are volatile and depend on factors such as weather conditions and current politics. The National Restaurant Association recommends that restaurants review their prices each quarter to see how any changes have affected their profits.
