News: KFC Introducing Reusable Side Container

KFC Reusable Side Container
In what they believe to be a fast food industry first, KFC is set to introduce it's new consumer-reusable food containers nationwide by early 2011 which will replace the current foam and plastic containers.

The new containers feature a clear polypropylene (the same material used to make leading retail food storage containers) bowl with a red lid embossed with “REUSABLE”, as well as a reminder that the container is both microwaveable and top rack dishwasher safe.

More interesting, the container features a patented “ventless vent” technology that allows moisture to escape without the need for a hole in the lid. The result is a leak-resistant lid that provides a secure fit and keeps food fresh. High tech, no?

Update: Here's KFC's video of the new containers:


  1. I'll post the same information to my blog, thanks for
    ideas and great article.

  2. I love it! Wish more restaurants would do the same. Wonder what it will do to costs. I would assume we will see a rise in the price of sides but I think it's worth it.
