ANGWIN, Calif. — In an emotional ribbon cutting ceremony, a large crowd of Pacific Union College faculty, staff and even students that had returned to campus early, celebrated the opening of the first Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant to grace an Adventist college campus.
“There have been moments of doubt when I thought this moment would never come,” said franchise owner, Fluhd Geits, wiping tears from her eyes as she fished for another Popcorn Nugget. “I thought that sodium-laden, colorless meat analogues would forever rule the day on PUC’s campus. But here we are, unveiling a beacon of hope mere days before the start of a new school year.”
Geits testified to the intense rivalry between herself and rebellious business management professors at other Adventist institutions that had “plagued every step of our journey to making PUC the first Adventist college home of Fiery Buffalo Wings Go Cups.”
Although Geits said that she had often felt ready to give in to the “comparative ease of opening yet another a juice bar or lifeless, healthy eating veggie burger joint,” she was proud that she had persevered and succeeded in her KFC quest.
Geits now says that her only remaining hurdle is an upcoming discussion with administration about whether her teaching contract will be extended.
