KFC Employees are Learning to Make Food in Virtual Reality

— August 25, 2017 — Marketing
KFC employees are learning how to make fried chicken with the company's new VR training program.

In the virtual story line, players are locked in a room and tasked to learn KFC's original chicken recipe, with the help of a spooky-sounding Colonel Sanders, who narrates the events. The first step requires players to inspect the chicken to ensure it's up to par with KFC's health and safety codes. Once they progress, users are in charge of rinsing, breading, racking, and pressure-frying the chicken. To leave the virtual room, trainees must have their deep-fried delight approved by Colonel Sanders himself. At the end of the experience, employees will receive a virtual certificate to congratulate them for completing their training.

The hands-on training is humorous and informative, offering an effective mode of teaching that eliminates the risk of ruining or wasting food.
Trend Themes
1. Virtual Reality Training - Industries catering to hands-on training can leverage VR technology to provide effective and engaging training programs.
