Gates, NY Empire Commercial Construction, a retail and small-project focused company, was awarded the contract for ground-up construction of a new Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Empire teamed with Kansas-based Davidson Architecture & Engineering for design and construction of the 2,200 s/f stand-alone restaurant located at 2232 Lyell Ave. Construction work is underway, with completion slated for next month.
“Empire is excited to further our relationship with KFC and the development team,” said Empire president, Jayne Penepent. “We are pleased to support KFC’s expansion and addition of new restaurants in our state, bringing with them many years of quality, affordable food and excellent service.”
The 2,200 s/f stand-alone restaurant on .50 acres is part of a multi-building development also featuring a WellNow Urgent Care location, formerly Five Star Urgent Care, directly adjacent. This new KFC location is able to seat more than 30 guests. Some features to this location include self-order kiosks, interior and exterior drive-thru digital menu boards and designated delivery driver parking.
