Wednesday 7th September 2016

Finger-lickin' fast food chain KFC is looking for eight new places to sell "So Good" chicken in Kent - and one is in Maidstone.

KFC, once known as Kentucky Fried Chicken, wants to open a restaurant in 59 locations across the south east and is looking for a possible drive thru location in town close to an A road.

According to reports, KFC says it wants drive thru sites of almost half an acre, on retail parks or the roadside with plenty of residential accommodation.

There are two formats - 82 seater and 114 seater restaurant with 30-40 parking spaces.

In town centres, they want units of up to 2,000 square feet.

KFC wants new sites in Maidstone, Seveoaks, Bluewater, Swanley, Ashford, Lee Green, Chatham South and Gravesend.
