KFC DT Pecica and KFC Orastie are two of the three restaurants managed by the gas station company along the A1 highway.

KFC DT Pecica is a drive-through restaurant situated along the A1 highway at km 558+380. KFC Orastie is located at km 340+500, within a Rompetrol station along the A1 highway.

KFC generated 50 jobs by opening the two restaurants.
