Fast Food and Takeaways


#1189

I had the same thing from Red Rooster last year


#1190

Pizza Huts still exists?, the one where I live closed down 11 years ago. Always use to go to Pizza Hut when I was younger, for the all you can eat the works, fantastic valve, that meant all you can eat soft serve ice cream with sprinkles! :grinning:

What beverage does KFC carry in the east?


#1192

Pepsi


#1193

I remember reading that KFC drinks differ between some states.

Is it bottled or post-mix Pepsi?


#1194

I’ve occasionally seen post-mix Pepsi & associated drinks at shopping centre food court KFCs, but I’m pretty sure most of them sell bottled drinks.


#1195

My local KFC is just bottled/canned beverages.


#1196

From a Victorian perspective, almost all stores i’ve been to in my area have bottled drinks. However, I have been to one in a relatively major shopping centre with post mix drinks put into a small cup. There is an extremely limited drink option in that store which is annoying, not even Solo.


#1197

Speaking of pizza chains, whatever happened to Pizza Haven? Did the company go bankrupt?


#1198

The company went defunct after it was bought out by Eagle Boys Pizza in July 2008.


#1199

Well, the algorithm works.


#1200

What beverage does KFC carry in the west?


#1201

Last time I was in WA in October 2012, they were carrying Pepsi on their stores. Not sure if that’s changed since.


#1202

Thanks. I recall reading that there’s a couple of states that come under different ownership than the rest. Can’t recall the details but thought perhaps they had different beverage agreements.


#1203

Yep, bottled Pepsi products in WA for as long as I can remember. I’m not sure exactly where I read or saw it, but some KFC’s were carrying Coke post-mix.

Collins Food Group-owned KFC’s had some differences IIRC, versus the Cowin-owned ones.


#1204

Likely because PepsiCo in used to own it until 1997, and would have had a strong relationship past that point. The franchises here would probably have always had some degree of separation so maybe could have done a different deal, but that link was certainly there.

Yeah, shopping centres are the only place I’ve seen post-mix at a KFC. That said, I prefer post-mix over the bottled stuff, so I wish more places did what Subway do and have both.


#1205

For many years McDonald’s sold only CCA’s Mount Franklin bottled water but in recent years has changed to Asahi/Schweppes’ Cool Ridge. Have to wonder how that happened.


#1206

I’ve only seen postmix at shopping centres and at one Service Centre in rural Victoria.


#1207

Even then, many food court stores have bottled drinks. I am glad that Westfield Geelong does bottles as when I lived in Adelaide, Westfield Marion had post mix and that tasted horrible


#1208

Post mix soft drinks taste terrible.
