Following in the footsteps of chain's such as Starbucks, Chick-fil-A and Chili's, KFC has announced that it will begin accepting mobile payment options as of this summer. With an increasing number of consumers swapping their wallets for their smartphones, the new system will allow the fast food chain to cater to tech-savvy customers.
According to the latest press release from the chain, KFC will now begin accepting mobile payments at select US locations. The payment options available to consumers include Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay. Not only will consumers be able to use their smartphone at the cash register, but they will also be able to purchase food at the drive-thru window with just a few taps of their screen.
With KFC's massive revitalization plan already underway in stores, the new payment options help the chain appeal to a younger and more tech-oriented customer base.
