Photographer Richard Allaway’s description:

“Glocalization is a term that was invented to emphasize that the globalization of a product is more likely to succeed when the product or service is adapted specifically to each locality or culture in which it is marketed. Here KFC is marketing a menu that will be different to that seen in outlets in Europe or America.”
