KFC Introduces Global Bestseller ‘Chizza’ in its US Menu

From the fried chicken chain that brought you the Double Down, KFC has done it again – pairing the unexpected to create another mouth-watering meal. Starting Feb 26 for a limited time, KFC is introducing the international smash hit, Chizza ("cheet-za"), to KFC menus in the US.

Chizza first debuted on KFC menus in the Philippines in 2015 and since then the KFC exclusive has made its way around the world to Korea, Taiwan, India, Thailand, Germany, Spain and Mexico, among other countries. 

"Fried chicken and pizza collaborated to create something even better – the Chizza," said Nick Chavez, CMO KFC US by adding that the fan-favorite mashup is finally available in the US after making its way around the world.

To celebrate its stateside debut, KFC will transform its restaurant at 242 E 14th St. in New York City – the pizza capital of the US – into a one-of-a-kind "Chizzeria" pop-up where customers will get to try Chizza before anyone else for free.

The KFC Chizzeria offers one menu item only, hot & fresh Chizza, in a KFC-ified, modern take on a classic pizzeria. The world's first Chizzeria (probably) opens its doors for a limited time, Friday, Feb. 23-Feb. 24 (1-9 p.m. ET), but don't worry, Chizza is available to the rest of the country starting Monday, Feb. 26.
