THE equivalent of more than one in five City of Kwinana residents attended the new KFC store last week, ordering 17,992 pieces of fried chicken.
WE NEED HUNGRY JACK'S.
All I want is a HJ's
Oh for goodness sake! Kwinana IS and has always been an industrial area. What do you get in an industrial area ...... workmen, hungry, hungry workmen. You may have also noticed all the construction going on around the place, shops, homes, and offices with lots and lots of hungry, hungry workmen.
I just got KFC for the third time this week. It's delicious. Luckily I'm balancing the chicken by eating some deep fried pig on the weekend
Have a thought for all those poor chickens!
Wide Escalators Really??? The only reason this store was busy is because Finally there is some CHOICE in the area! If you look at your own suburbs, I'll bet you'll find fatties everywhere. There's not one shopping centre in YOUR area that Hasn't a fast food chain.... Really people, are you all that stupid??
While it may not be a 100% god news story at least there is some nutritional value in chicken.This our latest import from the good old US of A:http://www.scotsman.com/news/edinburgh-krispy-kreme-looks-to-open-all-night-1-2810382God bless America.
Can't every1 look at the BRIGHT side of this?? Selling nearly 20 thousand peices of chook meens that a lot of umemployed locals have now got a job. They must of hired 50 or so local kids. I just hope there working for peanuts and not food, coz I got my suspictions.
Can't wait to read next week's story about the Hungry Jacks that came to town and caused the townspeople to sell their children so they could afford to buy every burger on the menu. Would you really like fries with that?
What a fowl tale. Must be a slow news week.
Doesn't the very first sentence of this article tell it all!!No wonder obesity is rampant in the Kwinana area. And the early onset of diabetes in a large proportion of the population is a given.Disgusting!
17,992 piece of chicken = 1999 birds (I think KFC gets pieces from each bird). This is outrageous for one week in one suburb. Just imagine the numbers on a nationwide, yearly basis - and that is only one type of fast food outlet. So much suffering for a short-term taste fix: complete with a whole range of long-term health problems.
This is not a story that is newsworthy Maybe should be avoided like the store it talks about and the people who feel the need to waste their money on greasy deep fried food instead of wholesome food.
Interesting article here; a vaguely disguised advert for KFC accompanied by statistics highlighting how fat and unhealthy the people of Kwinana must be.
I was at Kwinana Train Station the other day and I noticed the esculators were at least twice the width of the esculators at other train stations in Perth. If the folks of Kwinana are the types to skip work to check out the newly opened Kentucky Fried Chicken, then I think we may have solved the esculator riddle...
Is it true that the Kwinana Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Market went out of business due to a lack of customers?
I'm guessing property agents in Kwinana are going to be having trouble with corpses in home opens in years to come. Coz everyone in Kwinana is unhealthy.
What a load of bull !!! the reason behind selling so much in the first week is because Kwinana has been waiting for EVER to have a KFC in this town, we have missed out on heaps of fast food options until the Hub was finally redeveloped i say bring on HUNGRY JACKS and let us be happy in our little town lol
Please don't ruin a good news story with that all that negative stuff at the bottom. LOL
Note to self: Kwinana residents eat too much fried chicken.
