Kentucky Fried Chicken Rejects Assistance From Centralia To Keep Store OpenThe franchise license holder for Kentucky Fried Chicken in Centralia has turned down an offer of assistance from the City of Centralia to remodel the restaurant.
The store closed as of Sunday, December 22nd, after failing to meet a directive from KFC corporate management to comply with new remodeling guidelines.
City Manager Dan Ramey contacted the company about a possible incentive package to allow the store to be renovated. He says the Columbia, Tennessee based franchisee, JRN, Inc, did not feel they had the sales to justify keeping the store open.
