[NetEase] KFC has been red hot every since it entered China in 1987. You can find numerous Shanzhai knockoff KFC stores all over China. Recently there is a female version of KFC Colonel. Oriental Morning Post reported on August 7,  a Shaoxin (绍兴) based franchise which sells malatang (麻辣烫) (skewered vegetables and meat cooked in a hot and spicy soup, a street food from Chongqing), its sign is an old lady looks very similar to colonel Sanders. People call it the female version of colonel or colonel’s wife, girl friend etc…

There are already over 10 franchise stores opened up in Shanghai. The administrative department of industry and commerce says even this store’s sign is similar to KFC, but the store itself is totally different, so they do not violate copyright.
