In July 2020, the Indian arm of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), the US based fast food restaurant chain, launched an engagement campaign on the occasion of Fried Chicken Day (July 6) through social platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram. The campaign was aimed at reinforcing the connection between brand KFC and its consumers. It also aimed to remind the consumers about their love for food. As part of the campaign, the company organized a contest, in which fans were encouraged to express their love for chicken through creative memes, songs, quotes, poems, stickers, etc. They were also allowed to add different Bollywood songs to their comments. Fried Chicken Day had always been a special day for the company to celebrate with its consumers. But due to the extended lockdown period during COVID -19, KFC India focused more on the use of social media platforms and offered an opportunity to its fans to come forward and confess their love for Fried Chicken in a unique and interesting manner. As a result, by the end of August 2020, the company had received more than 700 confessions of love from followers across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. KFC India also reached more than 1.3 million fried chicken fans.
