    So far, I have noticed three KFC locations that have seemingly closed over night, with no indication of what is going on.
    Parsons & Livingston, South High near Jenkins Ave, and I heard one out on West Broad Street.
    Did the local franchisee go bust?

    I know the one @ Livingston and Parson was finally aquired by Children’s Hospital. It was kind of on an island anyway, I heard the owner was just holding out until Children’s got the $$ right.

    I believe the stores that closed were corporate owned, and they want to reduce the number of they own either by selling or closing them.

    KFC paid $170,000 for the property in 1984, sells to Children’s for $2.25 million recently…nice return on the investment!

    They will be missed. Good cheap lunch option. I hope a chik-fil-a opens in the GV location.

    I believe the proper term is “failure pile in a sadness bowl”.
