World’s Nicest KFC?

kfc-1.jpg

Could this be the world’s nicest KFC [well, nicest looking – they’re all pretty gross, really]? Commissioned by KFC Iceland, the 450 square meter building was designed by pk arkitektar [yes, designed to be a KFC – they didn’t just move in later] and completed in 2005. My ninjas, PLEASE!

Honestly, I think it looks ‘cold’ from the outside and that the concrete is a little overbearing – for a fast-food restaurant. That being said, I wouldn’t be complaining if they started replacing their US locations with buildings like this. I wonder what made them spend the money?

I know one thing, it’s sure-as-hell better than this:

By the way, if you know of a nicer KFC – or any fast food chain – hit us up. Always looking for some ridiculousness over here at MNP.

  3. Here in france, McDonalds or McDo (pronounced mac-dough) does some pretty different shit for restaurants than the yellow, red and white exteriors and slanted roofs, especially in cities. Looks more like starbucks than 1€ cheeseburgers.

  9. It looks nice. The best I have been in was Budapest, Hungary. It was built as a three story building due to limited horizontal space. There was balcony seating and a stream running through it. The whole place had a 1950’s US Rock theme, with an Elvis Suit in a glass case at the entrance.
