KFC Is Helping Customers Relax With ‘Pink Noise’ Kitchen Sounds
Capitalizing on the undying consumer interest in wellness and relaxation, the fast-food joint is offering listeners some TLC with audio recordings of chicken frying and bacon sizzling
In honor of World Mindfulness Day, Kentucky Fried Chicken is thinking outside the box to give fans of its restaurants a moment of peace and quiet in an otherwise chaotic world: The fast food retailer is releasing its own brand of ‘pink noise’ called KFChill.
In lieu of the classic waves crashing or falling rain, the program will let listeners sample the dulcet tones of the KFC kitchen. The list of sounds includes bacon sizzling in a pan, simmering gravy and the brand’s original recipe hitting the fryer—all of which are digitally mastered at a consistent frequency for a truly soothing effect.
Each sound plays on a loop for 60 minutes, so KFC can provide delectable relaxation to its listeners for three full hours. The restaurant intends for the initiative to serve as an entertaining and perhaps appetite-piquing extension of its brand, and caters to the evergreen consumer interest in wellness and relaxation.
