Collin Foods ASX - Like fried chicken and want to invest in KFC ?

how to invest in KFC in australia

Who does not like chicken ? - Chicken has always been of the more popular foods due to it being white meat , high in protein and  no health  risks in  comparisons to some other meats. So it would make sense if you actually think that this would be a good investment based on this general  information.


But picking stocks is not as simple as that ,  and punters should always do their research  before investing . However what we are focussing on  today on is Collin foods which we have featured on our blog before as a stock with potential. Collin foods is in the fried chicken sector , more specifically KFC.

Its currently trading @ $1.77

Jim Collins is the founder of the Collins Foods Limited, a franchisee of Kentucky Fried Chicken in Southern California, accepted the franchise for KFC in Queensland in 1968 and the first restaurant opened on 16th July 1969 at Kedron in Brisbane.

Collins foods has just announced that they are entering western Australia territory and expanding  and has announced that it is acquiring Competitive Foods, the franchisee of 44 KFC restaurants in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

This is going o add to their portfolio of  125 KFC fast food outlets, mainly in Queensland with a couple in NSW, as well as 27 Sizzler restaurants across Queensland, NSW and WA.

The acquisition will give Collins foods  a total of 169 KFC stores

This good news is also to be taken into consideration with the news that Collins Foods reported a 17% fall in net profit to $6.2 million for the six months to October 13, compared to the previous period. This could be attributed to Sizzler sales revenues have declined, this time by a hefty 9.1%

While the KFC store sales growth was up 1.3%, they are also increasingly losing sales to rival Dominos(ASX: DMP)  and also fresh new outlets  like Nandos , SALSA outlets ,  and also New franchisees Guzman & Gomez, Grilld Burgers and Crust Pizza owned by Retail Food Group (ASX: RFG)

We like to recommend this  stock to our viewers , but as always  do your own research before you invest and also have a read od what the fools have to say over here .If  they BOOST their sizzler earnings  and give  a bit of plus to their KFC earnings as well  , this could be a  diamond in the rough.

When banks behave badly–EBook

Every Australian Could be Owed Money

This is the book that every Australian should read. There is only one way to get your money back and that’s get educated about how they have been taking YOUR money. Once you understand the secret ways your account has been drained we show you how to claim it back. Did you know in the UK hundreds of Millions of Pounds have been handed back to Customers and its quietly going on here as well.

Can the banks shut us down?

Lets face it, I know the banks can play hard ball with teams of solicitors and they will try to close this site down any way they can, but we are prepared for it. We have the book loaded up on servers in different countries all round the world and there are back up web sites and domains located across the world as well. All sales are conducted in another country and the publisher is offshore as well.
