Kentucky Fried Chicken, located at 609 Military Road in Benton, will begin to make the transition to its new location at the end of this month, according to franchisee Mark Fikes.
â€śWe should start site prep by the 29th or 30th,â€ť Fikes said. â€śCompletion should be by June.â€ť
The move is in compliance with a recent buyout of the current KFC property by CVS Pharmacy.
â€śCVS wanted to locate there, and there were some other people involved,â€ť Fikes said. â€śWe went through the process and we decided it would be best for everybody and for the city of Benton if we moved.â€ť
