Construction of a new KFC Drive-Thru is due to begin in Lake next month (August), it has been confirmed.

Trojan Construction Management Ltd, the company contracted for the build, says work will begin mid-August and a handover is planned for late November, with the opening of the Lake store due to take place at the beginning of December.

As reported by Isle of Wight Radio last June the new addition could create 50 jobs.

The plans include 37 car parking spaces, and opening times of 10.30am until midnight six days a week, and until 11pm on Sundays.

A KFC Spokesperson said: 

“It’s great to be opening a restaurant in Lake and we can’t wait to welcome KFC fans in the area. The new drive-thru is due to open at the end of November and will feature a unique design made specifically for the Lake restaurant, as well as creating between 40-50 new jobs.
