http://www.bromsgroveadvertiser.co.uk/news/local/9808240.KFC_plans_to_open_Bromsgrove_restaurant/FAST food giant Kentucky Fried Chicken has confirmed it plans to open a new outlet in Bromsgrove.
A KFC spokesman has told the Advertiser terms have been agreed to build a restaurant in the town, subject to gaining planning permission.
The firm’s spokesman said: “It’s still early days and we can’t say a great deal but we are currently liaising with the landowners and local residents to ensure that their views are taken into consideration, when plans are submitted.”
A new takeway would create 40 jobs for residents in the local community, the spokesman added.
There are strong rumours the site chosen by the firm is on the junction of Charford Road, Stoke Road and the A38 - where the Sugarbrook pub is currently based.
The Advertiser understands nearby residents have received letters notifying them of the possible opening of an outlet, and asking for their views.
But the KFC spokesman was unwilling to confirm this was the location, describing it only as “a site in Bromsgrove”.
Townsfolk have been speculating that the fast food retailer wanted to open a franchise in Bromsgrove, for a number of years.
Having previously been tight-lipped, in 2009 the global chicken chain revealed tthey were interested in coming to the town.
This was after the firm had announced expansion plans to build 300 new outlets in the UK.
A Bromsgrove District Council spokesman said it would not be commenting, as no planning application had been submitted.
Attempts to contact the Sugarbrook pub proved unsuccessful before the Advertiser went to press.
