In Waterlooville KFC wants to move its drive-through, which is also the plan for Winchester and Above Bar in Southampton, as well as in Eastleigh town centre.

There are plans for new drive-throughs in Locks Heath, Petersfield, Chandler’s Ford, Totton, Alton and in north-east Basingstoke, and at West Quay in Southampton KFC wants to open a food court.

In Sussex there are plans for new drive-throughs on the A27 in Lewes and on the A259 Littlehampton

KFC’s website says ‘We’re on the lookout for over 500 sites’ and that it pays £20,000 for ‘recognised introductions’ – although it also adds that it is also interested in areas not on its list.

It is looking at drive-throughs, ‘small boxes’ which specialise in takeaways, restaurants and travel hubs at airports.
