Committed to Quality – A Tradition of Excellence

Felker Day, Inc. is a privately held company headquartered in Gastonia, North Carolina.

We are a second generation family business. Troy and Pauline Day successfully ran the business for over 47 years, and became involved with KFC and Colonel Harland Sanders when they opened their first KFC store in Lexington, NC. With the help of many dedicated people, the business grew rapidly to twenty-six stores located in North and South Carolina employing over 700 people. As of August 27, 2013 Day Enterprises, Inc. transferred to Felker Day eight of the KFC/Taco Bell stores.

The management of Felker Day is extremely involved in maintaining quality standards at all levels of the operation. Internally, management continually strives to stay ahead of industry trends, as well as advancements in technology, which allow us to operate the most efficient stores possible.

We will be successful in achieving our mission and reaching our goals by; (1) keeping ahead of industry trends, (2) committing appropriate resources to purchase the latest advancements in technology and equipment, and (3) providing continuous training for our employees.
