Libya Herald reports that KFC is threatening to sue the owners of a fast food outlet in Tobruk which is falsely claiming to be an official franchise.
A spokesman for the US-based Yum Brands, which owns the KFC brand, told the news agency:
“We are shocked with the news that a KFC outlet has opened in Tobruk … No franchise rights have been granted to any party in Libya …
“We are in contact with local authorities and external advisers and will be filing a legal action against the company and individuals claiming to have rights to open KFC”.
