News: KFC plan for Canklow


A planning application has been submitted for a new build KFC drive-thru restaurant at the site of the former Canklow Hotel in Rotherham.

The application is from the QFM group who successfully operate 31 KFC franchises and others across Yorkshire, the North of England and Scotland, including the 850 sq m restaurant at the Waterfront development at Manvers.

The new build 300 sq m drive-thru restaurant at Canklow would "generate approximately 20 employment positions at the application site." The public house had been empty for a number of years and the building was demolished recently due to an arson attack that rendered it unsafe.

As the site has "Gateway" status and prominence on the junction of Centenary Way, the planners have dispensed with the standard KFC design and used a bespoke design which would be contemporary in appearance. The feature element of the design is a curved 4m high glazed curtain walling and "roof turret."

QFM operate the restaurants as franchises and have been looking to expand in the area to meet known demand. They also operate the outlet in the town centre, which will remain.
