Airtel collaborates with KFC to give customers exciting treat
Accra, April 4, GNA - Airtel Ghana has announced that through its innovative mobile money service, Airtel Money, all Airtel Ghana's 1.5 million customers with a mobile wallet can pay for their meals at KFC.
A statement issued in Accra by Donald Gwira, Head of Corporate Communications and External Affairs and copied to the Ghana News Agency said, as an added incentive, customers who use Airtel Money to pay for their meals specifically the popular Streetwise 3, at any KFC branch, gets an extra piece of chicken whilst stocks last.
It said Airtel Ghana has been at the forefront of the mobile money revolution in Ghana, bringing about convenience, flexibility and security in carrying out all forms of financial transactions, key amongst them is the ability to pay for goods and services from Airtel Money partner merchants.
It noted that KFC is an internationally recognized brand that has managed to cut a strong niche for itself after a few years of establishing in Ghana, thus the collaboration with KFC would therefore see two big brands coming together to delight their customers with world-class services and value.
The Managing Director of Airtel Ghana, Lucy Quist, explained that Airtel's partnership with a high value company like KFC, would add to its growing merchant base, and provide its cherished customers variety and flexibility in payment.
'With this collaboration, Airtel has added to its 500 plus merchants countrywide which would provide over 1.5 million registered Airtel Money customers with a cool way to pay.'
Ms. Akosua Kumi, a customer who activated her Airtel Money account and purchased a chicken meal, had this to say, 'Even though I knew about the service on my phone, I had never activated it. Actually, the process is really simple and straight forward. I also received the promotional extra chicken which was really great.'
The Airtel Money service has been instrumental in changing the way customers transact business since it was first introduced in Ghana, and it is progressively moving towards achieving its target of helping to propel Ghana towards a cashless society.
