New KFC restaurant and drive-thru to open at Peterborough retail park
Popular fast food chain KFC will be opening a new drive-thru restaurant at a Peterborough retail park soon. The chicken franchise is planning to open an outlet at the Boulevard Retail Park, located off Maskew Avenue.
It comes as plans were submitted to create a new unit at the park in June 2023. It will see a restaurant, takeaway and drive-thru being built with a spacious dining area that can host up to 64 people.
The new outlet is part of the fast food chain's plans to grow the number of its restaurants in cities and towns across the UK. The park is one of a handful of areas that have been earmarked as a potential new site.
No official opening date has been confirmed for the new venue, nor how many people it will employ. However, there is expected to be a further announcement made in due time.
The new restaurant and takeaway will also be the fifth one to open in Peterborough. This follows on from existing ones on Ashborough Road, London Road, Paston Parkway and the A1 motorway services.
