This is a listing of countries with KFC franchises. As of year end 2014, there are 18,875 KFC outlets in 118 countries and territories located across the world.[4][5] The first KFC franchise opened in the United States in 1952, and in Canada a year later. The first overseas franchise was established in the United Kingdom in 1974. A large number of Caribbean and developed Western markets had been entered by the early 1970s. This was followed by expansion throughout the Middle East and developed Asian markets from the mid-1970s and into the 1980s. China was entered in 1987. Expansions were made into most of Europe countries and South America in the early 1990s. The most recent area of expansion is Africa, where the company is targeting that continent's growing middle class.

The major markets for KFC include China (4,563 units), the United States (4,491 units), Japan (1,181 units), the United Kingdom (784 units), South Africa (736 units), Canada (663 units), Australia (618 units), Malaysia (579 units), Russia (576 units) and Thailand (531 units).

The global operations are overseen by Yum! International, which is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. Yum! typically grant a master franchise to a local operator, or take a stake in a joint venture between such a company and itself. In 11 locations, Yum! International manages KFC directly, including China, Russia and India.[6] Worldwide, major franchise holders range from large local conglomerates such as Jardine Matheson and Doosan Group, to companies specifically established to run restaurants franchises, such as AmRest. In Japan, Malaysia and Indonesia, the major franchise holders are publicly listed companies. On the other hand, in smaller markets such as some Caribbean islands, the franchises may be operated by a single individual.
