KFC submit plans for Evesham restaurant and drive-thru

EVESHAM could be set to get its very own KFC after bosses from the fast food giant submitted plans to open a restaurant in the town.

The fried chicken chain submitted the proposals to Wychavon District Council last Friday which would see a 305 sq metre restaurant with a ‘drive-thru’ built on land north of the Twyford Service Station.

Access to the restaurant would be gained via a new junction from the road used to get to the Premier Inn and Orchard Pub.

A total of 42 parking spaces will be built as part of the proposed development which includes two disabled spaces. A cycle rack for four bicycles would also be provided.

What the proposed restaurant would look like.

If approved by planning chiefs, it will be built next to the Costa Coffee ‘drive-thru’ which was approved by planners last May, but has not yet been built.

A consultation on the plans will now run until Thursday, August 24 giving residents and key stakeholders the chance to have their say on the proposals.

In a statement to the Observer on Wednesday, A KFC spokesperson said: “We’d love to open a restaurant in the Evesham area for our fans to enjoy.

“It’s early days at the moment, but we are working on a suitable location and hope to have some good news in the future.”
