The KFC organising team set up a stage next to
the food court where the basket, reaching 4-ft high, was placed
on a digital scale.
The signature fried-chicken was prepared at six different
locations and was tranported to the venue, according to an official.
“We wanted Doha to be in the record books and what
better way to offer customers abundant supply of the product they
love, while setting a record on the way as well,” said Sherif al-Ashry,
the official of Qatar Food Company.
A large number of curious visitors who had gathered
to witness the feat were served the chicken afterwards. An Arabic-version
of the Book of World Records 2008 was also distributed free.
