He managed to do this for a year without being caught, amazingly, but eventually his luck ran out.
The unnamed (by police, not his parents) student from University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa apparently conducted himself with a dangerous amount of confidence as he told employees he was sent from KFC headquarters for quality assurance of the food served in the restaurant.
It’s also been reported that the unnamed man carried an ID card from head office and would dress in smart clothes. He’d even arrive in a limousine.
Might as well drive-thru in style.
Speaking with Xpouzar, a member of staff said:
“When he arrived we would all try to act our best so that we didn’t piss off the man from head office – he was so convincing because he was so confident, and even colleagues from other branches of KFC know him.
“When he came in, he rushed to the kitchen and checked everything, taking notes and then asked for samples of whatever he wanted. He probably worked for KFC before because he knows everything.”
The news was broken on Twitter, and the responses are pretty hilarious…
😂😂😂 He is a legend and is now very experienced taster. KFC should employ him

He’s like Robin Hood really. Sort of?
Actually not at all.
Not sure why I said that. Probably just trying to get the word count up.
