KFC U.S. Partners with Ingenico Group for EMV Migration

Quick service restaurant chain KFC has migrated its payments system in the U.S. to Ingenico Group’s Telium Semi-Integrated solution to simplify its path to EMV card acceptance and to reduce PCI compliance scope.

Customers will be able to pay using all forms of electronic payment, including EMV chip & PIN, EMV chip & sign, magstripe and NFC/contactless.

“Upgrading our payment terminals wasn’t just about migrating to EMV – it was about helping to protect our customers’ payment information and giving them the ability to pay the way they want, whether it’s by using their mobile device or their credit card,” said Chris Caldwell, KFC U.S. CIO. “Ingenico Group has helped KFC U.S. transition to EMV and implement a seamless payment experience for our customers with best-in-class terminals that accept a variety of payment options.”

KFC uses a mix of Ingenico Group’s iSC250 and iPP350 smart terminals at the counter and iPP350 smart terminals for its drive-thrus. KFC uses a semi-integrated approach, where cardholder data is routed around the point of sale. This approach better protects its customers’ payment information, KFC claims. With Ingenico Group, the QSR was able to transition from a fully integrated to a semi-integrated model.
