Forget Cupid, the Colonel’s in town…

Valentine’s Day might be done and dusted, but this is no time to stop searching for the secret ingredient to your original recipe. 

Acting as the ultimate wingman this February, KFC has partnered with the OG of in-person dating apps, Thursday, to supercharge your dating game 

To commemorate the epic partnership, KFC has given its iconic buckets a Thursday-inspired makeover featuring peelable pick-uplines, so you don’t chicken out when someone spicy catches your eye. With lines such as ‘My Krushem brings all the boys to the yard’and ‘Wanna Netflix and chi…cken?’, these will get your conversations flowing better than KFC gravy. 

The limited-edition buckets will be served up at KFC in Waterloo for one Thursday only, and at an exclusive KFC x Thursday event taking place at Bar Elba on 23rd February, which is sure to get your pulse racing and tastebuds pumping. Whether sharing a bucket or trying out a ‘chick-up’ line with your future bae, KFC is the only wingman you need. 

Come down and join us (with your single flock in tow) on 23rd February with tickets available on the Thursday app from Friday 17th February… and who knows? Maybe even get a cheeky peck. 

The KFC x Thursday event will be hosted at the Bar Elba, 111 Waterloo Rd, London SE1 8SG
