KFC Malaysia has been on a roll lately, dishing out discounts and ramping up its corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities, despite facing challenges such as branch closures and alleged boycotts by Malaysians over the Palestine issue.

In their latest move to win back customers and celebrate Mother’s Day, the fast-food chain has slashed the price of their 9-piece fried chicken set from RM54.99 to just RM36.

The Mother’s Day promotion, which runs from 10 to 12 May, allows customers to purchase up to three sets of the discounted 9-piece fried chicken meal.

To sweeten the deal, customers can also add a large portion of mashed potatoes or coleslaw for an additional RM4.

KFC Malaysia has a long history of supporting local causes and has been integral to the Malaysian community for decades.

Despite the temporary closures, over 600 KFC outlets operate in Malaysia.

However, the current situation has allowed new local brands to emerge and capitalize on the perceived weakness in KFC Malaysia’s market position.
