KFC Demolition Coverage

When we first moved to Franklin in August of 2005, we ate at this KFC/Taco Bell a couple of times (mom was craving tacos for a week, so that’s why I say “a couple of times”) and this joint was so.nasty. A new KFC/Taco Bell will be put up in its place.

KFC/Taco Bell. Dead October 2007. Franklin, VA



  1. Best of luck with the new Taco Colonel.

    Like that “whoa, what’s this on the front page” shot of the newspaper.

    Chagrined to say I also like the paper’s headline. “A Serious Takeout Order”, heh . . .

  2. That’s sort of odd. In the pictures, it looks like it’s undergoing (or underwent) demolition. Most of the KFC/whatever combos I’ve seen are modular units that can actually be disassembled and moved to new locations if necessary. Sonic builds their stores the same way.

    Usually Yum Brands or Sonic finances the building for the franchisee and takes a collateral interest in the building, but not the land on which the building sits.

  3. Still got the old KFC bucket. When you see that you know that locations gotta be old.

  4. BTW:

    I’d never heard of the Big Chicken KFC of Marietta, GA till I saw this video (local TV news item from 1997):

    Now I have a reason to go to Atlanta . . .
