KFC has a VR training game because nothing is sacred anymore

KFC has a VR training game because nothing is sacred anymore

KFC decided the best way to teach new employees how to cook its Original Recipe chicken was to place them in a "delicious prison" and get them to learn "the hard way".

The chain wrote in a press release that it started using a virtual reality tutorial-compatible with Oculus headsets-to train employees how to cook fried chicken.

The New York Times reported that the three people ejected from the meeting were issued citations for disorderly conduct. "Council voted unanimously at their meeting to shroud the statues to reflect the city's mourning", Rice said.

"KFC will use the VR simulation to supplement its robust, multi-step employee training program, called Chicken Mastery Certification, which provides detailed eLearning and hands-on training for cooks in each of KFC's kitchens", says the company in a statement. This includes inspecting, rinsing, breading, racking, and then pressure frying virtual chickens. Now KFC is owning the darker, crispier parts of its brand with a new VR horror game that's become a "bizarre initiation rite" for new employees, according to Eater. The fast food chain has over 19,000 cooks across all of its US locations, and the spokesperson described the KFC VR training game "a fun way to celebrate the work" all those workers do. "Our cooking process hasn't changed much in 70 years, but the way we can train our cooks using modern technology sure has".

Why is KFC using such a unusual training game?

The new Railway Board Chairman, Ashwani Lohani has previously served as DRM in Delhi Division. "Hon'ble PM has asked me to wait". Suresh Prabhu has ordered a probe into the derailment case and had said that no laxity would be allowed by the board.

KFC is the coolest when it comes to their training program. It also has a bit of practicality to it - as KFC told Eater, the process of preparing and frying chicken in-store takes about 25 minutes, while this game can get the basics across in 10 by cutting out the time spent waiting for the chicken to fry.

Only one way to find out though.
