Wait continues for KFC opening

CUSTOMERS in Arbroath will have to wait a little longer before eating at the new Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) restaurant at the Westway Retail Park.

Building work on the fast food outlet appears to have been completed a number of weeks ago, but there has been no sign of the restaurant actually opening.

It was believed that the drive-thru had been due to open at the end of October, but barriers preventing access still remain around the site.

A spokeswoman from KFC told the Herald that the chain hoped to open their new restaurant in the town as soon as possible, but there was still work to be done beforehand.

The new restaurant has created 30 new jobs in the local community and planning permission has already been granted to extend the Westway Retail Park further.

Earlier this year, KFC did say they hoped to open their restaurant in early 2011, but building work that seems to be complete had prompted the belief it was to open sooner.
