Chicago Tribune

KFC wants to help patch the nation’s potholes.

The fast-food chain has sent off a letter to the nation’s mayors, offering to patch their potholes for free. The company will leave behind a stenciled brand on the patch informing people the road has been « Re-Freshed by KFC. »

« In honor of our « Fresh Tastes Best » campaign, we want to come and Re-« Fresh » your roads! » KFC president Roger Eaton says in the letter. « Every patched pothole comes with the Colonel’s very own stamp of approval. »

KFC has already tried out its campaign to stamp out potholes in its hometown of Louisville, Ky., earning a testimonial from Louisville’s Mayor Jerry Abramson who noted that « finding funding for needed road repairs is a continuing challenge. » The company will choose four other cities.
