What I really liked about the "Curry Crunch" launched by KFC – to quote them, a bone in product, i.e. mainstream entree – was that the launch pictured above was in Jamaica. The theme for the launch event was Indian yet interestingly enough, the product, the first innovation in this area in a decade, was developed in Malaysia.
Here is an interesting case of local taste adaption by a multinational fast food brand which is then launched in other similar markets without the product variation ever coming back to the domestic market. So unlike say the McAloo Tikki type variations in India by Mcdonalds, these kind of local flavors can cross geographic boundaries where cultural preferences may be similar enough. Though who’s to say a McAloo Tikki won’t be successful in the US?
