The popular fried chicken chain has listed locations on its website where it want to open new restaurants – which include plans for drive-thrus in the two towns.
It is inviting developers to get in touch if they have a space that could be of interest, and says the company will pay £20,000 “for all recognised introductions”.
The inclusion of Netherfield on its list ‘wanted’ list will come as a surprise to local residents following the closure of a drive-thru restaurant in the town only two years ago. The site is now occupied by a Costa drive-thru.
KFC restaurant currently has one restaurant in the in the borough at Mapperley.
According to the company, drive thru sites are its most popular type and can be fit into vacant sites of more than 0.3 acres. Existing building conversions will also be considered.
Its restaurant options are considered where drive-thrus cannot be accommodated. As this is just a wish list of locations where KFC wants to expand, there is no guarantee that restaurants will definitely pop up in each new site.
KFC currently has more than 900 branches in the UK.
