A Big Change With KFC

When was the last time you ate at KFC?

Okay, I guess I'm the only one that can say recently!

Well KFC is about to change it up and jump into the UPSCALE RESTAURANT business.
 
They've announced a new restaurant called "KFC Eleven," and they're going to open it next month near their headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky.
 
The "eleven" is a reference to the 11 herbs and spices . . . even though you WON'T be able to get their regular fried chicken.  It'll only serve flatbreads with toppings, rice bowls, salads, and boneless chicken.
 
Also, the restaurant WON'T feature Colonel Sanders in its logo.
 
KFC is opening the new restaurant to compete with chains like Chipotle and Panera, which charge a little more than fast food restaurants but also have a reputation for serving better, higher quality food.
 
If the first KFC Eleven does well, they plan on opening at least one more location within a year. 

What do you think?  Is it a good idea?  Would you go?
