2021 Announcements

The Power of Opportunity

By Kelly Rodenberg

The theme for AKFCF President, Brandon Robertson’s 2020 term was “Power of the People.” Throughout the last four issues, we introduced a special section in the magazine called “Power of the People.” Each issue highlighted three individuals who were making a difference in the KFC system. We focused on areas such as operations, marketing, and communications.

As Brandon continues his term through March of 2022, he has selected a new theme — “The Power of Opportunity.” When we say yes to opportunities, that is how we grow and evolve.

Life is full of opportunities. We are presented with numerous opportunities every day in some form or shape. But it’s easy to miss those opportunities because they don’t often look like we think they should. Or we allow fear to stop us from grasping opportunity when it presents itself to us. Depending on the circumstances, an opportunity met or missed can be life-changing.

If we want to grow in life and work, we need to learn how to recognize opportunity when it arises and to create new opportunities for ourselves. But we don’t want to stop there, as we keep growing, we learn how to help create opportunities for others as well.

That’s where you come in, we want to hear about your KFC life-changing opportunities. We want others to see the value in recognizing and providing opportunities. We hope it moves you to want to do more and encourage others to do more. The more you give, the more you grow. So please, share your stories with us so we can share them with your KFC family in the next few issues of The Quarterly magazine. You can send them along with any personal or work photos to on or before October 1st.

We look forward to hearing your story!

I am honored to serve this great Association and Family of KFC franchisees this year. I must first say thank you to Jim Mckenzie for an amazing year he led our family through. His leadership style is truly best in class and I am blessed to have had the opportunity to serve as his first vice president and learn from him. There are so many leaders that have gone before me in the KFC system that I could not begin to name them all. However, I have to say thank you to all of them for having made our association an amazing family of franchisees and associates of franchise organizations.
