Louisville, Kentucky--KFC Holdings plans to add another international franchise, this time a bakery, to its stable this year. Datuk Abdullah Omar, executive deputy chairman of KFC Holdings, said the KFC group was in the early stages of discussion with a U.S.-based company to acquire the franchise but won't release its name. KFC is no stranger to bakery business, supplying Bakers Street products to supermarkets. It also used to operate a chain of bakery-style cafes under the Bakers Street brand, but they were closed down last year due to unsatisfactory performance. -The Star Online
