A Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant run by deaf employees

January 11, 2008

Is it amazing to have all deaf employees at KFC restaurant? When the hearing customers come to the cashier, I wonder what kind of communication did they use? Sign Language? Write a note? Use gesture?

In Cupola, Pakistan Ltd, aims to ‘create value through change, challenging existing paradisms by appling vision, innovation and skilled execution’. I wish here in the America follows their philosophy. Be sure to click the link below to see more pictures of them.

    Stuff like this is cool. But, we always must be very careful
    about what we eat inside and outside of the United States.

    .. Rater I made my own recipe.. I would not go KFC. I hate their homemade is not really taste is not great. Late 1960’s it was so good.. but not anymore!

    Oh yeah, I remember that story which ran about 2-3 years ago. If I remember correctly, there were 30 Deaf employees along with two hearing managers that runs KFC. I wonder what happens now, though.

    Let’s find out if they are still around and run it, I hope!

    Eh, why don’t Russian or Ukrainian deaf have started their own business. This would make a lot.

    That’s pretty cool, although, I do wonder if hearies cry discrimination when they want to work there and gets denied.

    For those who negative about KFC’s yucky chickens, please ignore that negative parts and uprises the positive sides!! Ironically, its so bad to jump into wrong conclusion, please read careful before saying something out loud!! We’re FOCUS on positive issue about their excellent models & moral value of what’s paradism in their country is alike which able to be preventable and have shown their barriers have breaking down. Deaf & any disabilities can do anything in special & interest ways. Im proud of Pakistan people!!! They show their biggest hearts way beyond to support the brighten side.

    Yea, me too!! Im wondering about hearies have addresses the discrimination. Probably manager/owner of KFC clarify somehow like media or newspapers explaining something that may help hearies understanding about ample of opportunities jobs out there await while Deafies face many barriers. Could be anything like that, what u think?…

    For those other countries’s situations – Believe that WFD (World Federation of/for/by Deaf) or some other organizations is something that may already done the actions to spread out the awareness & recognizations about Deafies and jobs’ opportunities. Who knows… Like for instance, Vloggers and Bloggers on media is already here, out there is reading us daily. Isn’t that good thing we have in this 21st century!!?? Breaking the Barriers in unique ways we go!!!!

    i went to this kfc chain in malaysia when i was little. saw tons of sign language (a to z signs) on the walls. my dad ordered stuff. then i noticed that the girl taking the order is deaf. she read lips. i don’t know if my dad noticed that. but luckily he has the tendency to look straight at the face of the people taking our meal orders anywhere we go so i guess it helped the girl in some ways (we also repeat the orders before she left the table). too bad i don’t know what happened to the chain and where it was. that was like 12-15 yrs ago.
