KFC could bring jobs boost to Belper


Belper could be set for a new KFC restaurant after the company hinted at opening a restaurant in the town.

The fried chicken company plans to open up in the town and although details are minimal at this stage, it would bring a welcome jobs boost to the area.

The Belper restaurant would be one of three new openings, with the food giant also wanting to open other branches in neighbouring Derby and Swadlincote.

A spokesman for KFC said: “We can confirm that we are interested in these areas for new drive-thru restaurants and we hope to have some good news soon.”

KFC has over 800 branches throughout the UK.

The exact locations have not been revealed, however, the company states on its website that those in Belper and Swadlincote would be “close to the main roads and retail”.

The one in Derby would be “close to a main road, retail and a hospital.”
