American Restaurants Sp. Zo.o (AmRests), owners of Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken have a long tradition of being Sociably Responsible and in helping Polish people in need for more than 10 years. We are proud to have Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken as Members of the Foundation for Corporate Social Responsibility.
The Socially Responsible culture of AmRest is ongoing, and is an integral part of all corporate activities. It reflects AmRest’s key values of “Obligations Toward Society.” Social Responsibility played a major part in the 10th year anniversary celebration of AmRests in Poland. As a part of the formal activities, employees and the management of Pizza Hut and KFC participated in a very special day of activities with a group of mentally disabled children and young adults in AmRest’s home town of Wroclaw.
Employees learned a great deal about their community as they joined hands with a special group of people they knew little or nothing about, mentally disabled children. They spent time getting to knowing each other, sang songs, played games and actually worked closely with the children’s teachers and therapists in conducting daily rehabilitation activities.
This was not in any way an ordinary day. After a full Saturday morning of fun and play, the children were treated to a special lunch especially prepared for them by Poland’s very best. And wouldn’t you know it? World famous slices of Pizza Hut pizza and scrumptious KFC chicken wings and legs were the specialty of the day! It was a wonderful experience for everyone involved. The special kids of Wroclaw loved every minute, and the AmRest employees returned home knowing that they had responsibly made a difference in every life they touched that Saturday morning. The memories are sure to last for all of these new friends. Thank you AmRest for making a difference!
AmRest had 113 Pizza Huts and KFCs in Poland, and 22 KFCs in the Czech Republic at the end of 2003.
