WINDSOR -- Two KFC restaurants in Windsor have shut their doors.
A sign in front the Kentucky Fried Chicken location on Wyandotte Street West near the University says the retail space is for lease.
Another sign on the door of the KFC on Erie Street East at Gladstone also says “this locations is closed.”
The sign directs customers to the KFC at 4320 Tecumseh Road E.
“We made the decision to close the two restaurants in Windsor in an effort to revitalize the KFC brand,” said Jamie Hood, chief development officer of KFC Canada. “These closures in no way reflect the dedication and contributions of our valued team members, rather are part of a broader strategy to modernize our brand and to continue delivering the exceptional service our customers have come to know and expect from us.
Hood says this isn’t goodbye.
“We will be re-opening a new restaurant in Windsor later in 2020 featuring a new design,” said Hood.
