The fast food chain has announced the plan to add to the 900 stores already open by adding more drive-thrus for customers to enjoy.

And the good news is there is a new drive-thru proposed for the A1 Doncaster to Pontefract.

The UK-wide branch says its drive-thrus are the most popular assets to the company. To build a drive thru only require 0.3 acres to fit into vacant sites, with existing building conversions also considered.

Restaurant options are also being considered where drive-thrus cannot be accommodated, while "small boxes" can fit "into 1,000 sqft with a unique design while still offering customers a great experience".

KFC also invited developers to get in touch if they have a space that could be of interest to the restaurant chain, and says the company will pay £20,000 “for all recognised introductions”.
