Cowplain’s Kentucky Fried Chicken, located on the A3 near to The Spotted Cow is closed.
When taking the photograph of the store, I noticed that many of the roof tiles had been displaced and some were missing, could this be the reason for the closure?
The Cowplain KFC is located in one of village’s older buildings and has been located at this site since at least the 1970’s.
A notice for customers in the window reads:
UNFORTUNATELY ATTRIBUTABLE TO ON GOING MAINTENANCE WORKS WE ARE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
PLEASE ACCEPT OUR APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.
YOUR NEAREST STORE IS KFC HAVANT THAT REMAINS OPEN AS USUAL.
We contacted the KFC HQ 25th Feb 2016 for more information and on 2nd Mar 2016 we received this reply, “We have temporarily closed the Cowplain restaurant due to planned refurbishment work, which is expected to last for approximately 12 weeks. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but are looking forward to welcoming our fans back into the new and improved restaurant when we re-open. Customers can visit our nearby restaurant in Havant during our temporary closure.”
There are plans to open a new drive-thu KFC store in Waterlooville at the former BAE site, it is not known whether this new Waterlooville store will supplement or replace the pre-existing Cowplain store.
If you are the owner of this store or work at this store, please get in touch with more details.
Many thanks to Lucy for the tip-off.
