KFC Canada has launched its own meal carrier, Bucket Björn, available for a limited period of time.
Launched as part of Father’s Day, the meal carrier features wide padded shoulder and hip straps, as well as a sauce pocket and a napkin dispenser.
KFC Canada digital media and advertising associate manager Danielle Ruggles said: “Whether you’re sitting on the dock, playing a round of golf, or taking in a ballgame this weekend, the KFC Bucket Björn keeps fathers close to their bucket wherever they go.
“Father’s Day is a time to celebrate all great dads in Canada. This Sunday let them dig into their finger lickin’ good chicken with both hands.”
In a separate development reported earlier this month, KFC is testing vegetarian menu items as an alternative to fried chicken in the UK.
A company spokesperson was quoted by CNN as saying: “We always look to respond to the latest changes in lifestyle and dining habits of our customers.

“That’s why we’re looking into vegetarian options.”
A spokesperson added: “The development of the recipe is still in its very early stages and so the options we’re exploring in our kitchen are still top secret.”
The vegetarian menu item is expected to be launched in the UK and Ireland in 2019. It is also planning to introduce low or zero calorie soft drinks.
KFC currently operates more than 21,000 restaurants in more than 130 countries around the world including over 600 locations in Canada.
