If you've passed by the Cheyenne Kentucky Fried Chicken recently, you may have noticed something a bit... different about the location. They are actively moving along with remodeling and renovating the building!
Cheyenne KFC History
If you've lived in Cheyenne for 15+ years or visited at some point back then, you'll likely recall that KFC used to be closer to downtown Cheyenne; it was once located next to Baskin Robins at what is today Rodolfo's Mexican Grill. According to the property assessor, the building was built in 1968!
Plans are submitted and construction begins
Sometime in late 2022, it was noted here at Optopolis that site plans were in place to remodel and renovate the KFC, but at the time, it wasn't quite clear whether this was actually going to take place. Very recently, however, construction had begun.
Signage outside of KFC right now indicates that the drive thru will be open throughout construction. Another sign that could be seen posted in the window of one of the entry doors states that the lobby "will be closed February 20th...for a Remodel."
As of a visit on February 22nd, one could see from the drive thru window that the lobby was already sealed off from the kitchen, and by February 23rd, the sign above the entry door had already been removed!
The sign on the door also indicated that the lobby would be closed until March 20th. Based on the perspectives of the building in the items submitted to the city planning website, this KFC will soon use design aspects more similar to that of the KFC in Loveland off of Eisenhower.
Will you miss their buffet, or do you prefer going through the drive thru? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
