43 new career opportunities in the town.

KFC is delighted to announce that its Sheldon store has relocated in order to provide more services, more career opportunities and more chicken to its supportive local residents. The new Coventry Road store was officially opened by Lord Mayor Shafique Shah last month.

Sheldon chicken fans can now look forward to the convenience of an added drive-thru and a 51-space car park when they visit the store. The new restaurant boasts two large order bays on the outside of the building, while diners in-store will benefit from KFC’s latest ‘Fusion’ design, making the speed of service much quicker. The new site will be a positive upgrade in the local community and has already created 43 new career opportunities, replacing a vacant four-story office building,

On the 5th October, there was a family and friends open day, where a lucky few were able to dine in the new restaurant before the official opening. Now all Sheldon residents can join in the fun as the 230 square meter restaurant is officially open to the public.

Shafique Shah, Lord Mayor of Birmingham, said:

“The opening of the new KFC in Sheldon will bring a welcome economic boost to the area, not only through the 40 or so jobs created, but also because it will increase footfall for other businesses nearby. It’s a fantastic addition to the local community”.

Abbas Ghulam, KFC Restaurant Manager, said:

“I’m delighted to be manager at the new and improved restaurant in Sheldon. KFC has definitely got a lot to offer young people in the local area who are interested in having the chance to work and develop their skills—I have worked at KFC since I was 16 so I know how you can build a great career here. The drive-thru in Woeley Castle has been really popular so we look forward to bringing fresh tasty chicken back to our patient fans.
