Fast food giant Kentucky Fried Chicken is opening an outlet in Clitheroe later this year.

Recruitment has already started for the new KFC with an advert for staff circulated on the social media site Facebook.

However, when the Clitheroe Advertiser contacted KFC’s press office this week, it refused to release details about where the new outlet would be sited despite rumours that it would open on the Ribble Valley Business Park, Holm Road, Barrow, where McDonald’s is.

The Euro Garages website website confirmed the location on Tuesday evening while inviting people to apply for jobs.

A KFC spokesperson said: “We are delighted to be opening a new restaurant in the Clitheroe area, due to open towards the end of this year.

“The restaurant will create career opportunities for those in the local community and we look forward to welcoming residents into the restaurant.”
