KFC to open restaurant in Caerphilly
Fast food chain KFC has confirmed it will be opening one of its restaurants in Caerphilly.
The new drive through branch is scheduled to open on Crossways Retail Park in early 2013 on the site of the former Jupiter Furniture store. Forty new jobs will be created – although it is unclear how many of those will be part-time.
A spokeswoman for KFC said: “We’re delighted to announce that we will be opening a KFC in Caerphilly in early 2013 at Crossways Retail Park, creating 40 career opportunities in the area, and we’re looking forward to welcoming local residents to the restaurant.”
Cardiff-based Trojan Construction has announced it has been awarded the contract to build the new outlet.
A statement on its website reveals: “We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded our third new build KFC contract of 2012.
“Works are due to commence on October 3 to construct a new drive through KFC restaurant at the site of the former Jupiter Furniture Store at Crossways Retail Park, Caerphilly. Works are anticipated to take 23 weeks to complete.”
Crossways Retail Park already has a McDonald’s and a Pizza Hut alongside a traditional burger van in the car park of B&Q.Follow @CaerphillyObsvr
