WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: The KFC Foundation has rolled out a free mobile app, making it easy for KFC U.S. restaurant employees to find a charitable assistance program (or two, or three…) that fits their current needs – and then connects them directly to the next step. “The heart of what the Foundation does is care for restaurant employees. So, we want to put program information right in employees’ hands,” says KFC Foundation Managing Director Krista Snider. “Creating an app is the best way to do that, while also making it easier for RGMs [Restaurant General Managers] to share all the KFC Foundation offers with their teams.
While the main goal is matching employees to the right education, hardship or personal finance program and giving them the tools they need to move forward, users can also browse a “What We Do” section, view important upcoming dates and link to the Foundation’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts. The KFC Foundation mobile app is available for Androids and iPhones on Google Play and the App Store – just search “KFC Foundation.”
