In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, KFC Canada is officially changing its name to K’ehFC.
The company is marking the change with a new sign at its first-ever Canadian location in Saskatoon, which opened in 1955.
Officials said the 8th Street location has been serving Saskatoon customers since Colonel Sanders himself sealed it with a handshake.
“K’ehFC has proudly embraced its Canadian roots for 62 years, from our iconic red and white style, to our friendly, neighbourly presence from coast-to-coast,” Stephen Scarrow K’ehFC senior marketing manager, advertising and media, said in a press release.
“Canada Day is about togetherness – for the country, our communities, and for our friends and family, and bringing people together over a bucket of chicken is what K’ehFC stands for.”

The K’ehFC name will be in effect throughout summer.
