KFC have a redesign
All 870 of the chicken-based restaurant chain's interiors are set to be revamped from March 2015, which they reckon represents “the future of interior design for KFC”.
To get an idea of what's to come, the chain have launched the new spruce-up at their Bracknell branch, with Exeter and Reading next on their list.
Although they'll have to pull their finger out, to get it nationwide before their self-imposed deadline.
Gone are the easily-copied-by-Chicken-Cottage fittings of old, and now it's all exposed ceilings and textured brick effect walls, accessorised with illustrations of, well, mainly chicken, from commissioned artists
Jane Sawby of KFC's in house interior design cabal, reckons the design was inspired by “families and friends coming together around the kitchen table to share freshly made food” adding, “KFC was designed with sharing in mind”.
You'll also be able to see your food being prepared in a “semi open-plan kitchen” get-up.
Swaby continues: “The sense of the kitchen being the heart of the home really influenced the authentic, inviting design. You can feel the openness and warmth from the moment you step through the door and we hope that customers feel at home in the new restaurant.”
There's just too much speak there, so we'll leave that with you to digest what they're banging on about. Basically, it sounds like they've noticed how well Nando's and Bar Burrito are doing.
