China: The People's Heroic KFC

Kentucky Fried Chicken has opened a new branch in honor of Lei Feng, a legendary model soldier in China’s People’s Liberation Army, in his hometown of Changsha, in Hunan province. The restaurant opened in time for Lei Feng Day, a national holiday when people are encouraged to show goodwill and lend a helping hand to others. Yum China plans to open 250 Lei Fang KFCs throughout Hunan.
