Managing Director of the local KFC franchise, Mr. Deo Singh confirmed Saturday that all four KFC outlets in the city as well as the PIZZA Hut have been temporarily closed for maintenance and upgrade, and will be reopened as soon as works are completed.
He is assuring the public that there is no need for panic, since the service is definitely not suspended and customers will be able to ‘savour the flavour’ of Kentucky Fried Chicken and enjoy the serenity and ambience that make for the comfort and satisfaction of the public.
Speaking with the Sunday Chronicle yesterday, Mr. Singh said that the KFC facilities located on Vlissengen Road, Bagotstown, Mandela Avenue and Stabroek, as well as the PIZZA Hut on Vlissengen Road closed their doors for maintenance works on Thursday evening, and are expected to be reopened next Thursday.
When the Sunday Chronicle visited the Vlissengen Road outlet yesterday, work had already commenced, and carpenters and construction workers were working feverishly to get the job done.
A notice posted on the Stabroek facility states: “Please be advised that KFC will be closed for maintenance and upgrade. Customers will be advised of our reopening. We apologize for any inconvenience caused, and we do look forward to continuing to serve you.” (Shirley Thomas)
