KFC converts to Krispy Krunchy Chicken
May 17, 2012 by Sarah
The KFC in Cuyahoga Falls, located just southwest of Stow, became a Krispy Krunchy Chicken earlier this month. Rao’s Hospitality Inc. in Columbus owns many of the KFC restaurants in the Ohio and Pennsylvania area. This becomes the fourth of their KFC stores in Ohio which has closed in the last two months.
Krispy Krunchy Chicken is a louisiana-based franchise chain. As well as chicken, they serve diverse dishes such as catfish flavored with Cajun seasonings. Founded in 1989, it boasts more than 600 locations across 25 states. The chicken is fried in zero trans-fats oil and a variety of Cajun dishes are on the menu.
As new businesses move into the area, local print companies may find their services in demand by these companies. Generally, they will require business card printing or stationery printing to make themselves known in a new location. In addition, banner printing and other forms of advertisement are often used to announce grand openings and promotions within new stores and restaurants.
Business still goes on, however, at Stow’s KFC store on Kent Road. Curtis Gibbs, who is an assistant manager there, stated that the store had no plans to close at any time in the near future. Gibbs added that significant renovations to the Stow store had been made in recent months. Peter Paul, Rao’s Hospitality’s human resource director, said that they have made a significant investment in the renovation of the Stow store and do not intend to close it, though he did add that whether the restaurant is to remain a KFC was to be determined.
