A new hotel set to open in London will not only be KFC themed but will offer its guests unlimited fried chicken. The brand are hosting a staycation pop-up hotel in hotel House of Harland between the 18th and 29th of August in London. Guests will be fancily picked up from Kings Cross station in a Black Cadillac to be privately escorted to the hotel in trendy Shoreditch. There, a chick-in-clerk will welcome the guests and offer as much fried food as one wants. 

Behind the door or room 11, where the KFC suite is located, a ‘press-for-chicken’ button has been set up. Pushing that button will summon a slew of fried foods for the guest to enjoy. Accompanied by a Hot Winger Arcade Machine and a cinema room showing ‘chick flicks’, the suite can host two adults for the available six days. Any proceeds will be donated to the KFC Foundation and due to it being a pop-up hotel, it seems as though people will be flocking to book their lucky stay!
