A few of the many KFC closings in Canada are being bought up by ChickFelays (not to be confused with Chick-Fil-A). They are certified Halal by HMA.
A company that owns more than 400 KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut franchises across Canada has been granted court protection as it moves to sell its restaurants to a European franchisee.
Priszm Income Fund obtained the order from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act, the Toronto-based company said Thursday.
Priszm plans to sell 231 of the fast-food eateries in Ontario and British Columbia to U.K.-based Soul Restaurants Canada Inc.
In the Toronto area KFC stores are being purchased by a small chain of ‘Halal’ restaurants which cater to Muslims.
The restaurants in the Toronto area are called, "Chick-felays", obviously borrowing from the popular "Chick-fil-A" brand in the US.
The Muslim restaurants offer an exclusive "halal" menu which, for obvious reasons, doesn’t include bacon sandwiches. One such restaurant is on Royal Windsor Drive at the corner of Ford Rd in Oakville, On just west of downtown Toronto.
