KFC first announced back in April that they were planning on opening up a "fast casual" test restaurant in Louisville, Ky., near the corporate headquarters of their parent company, Yum! Brands. Back then, the company said that it would be an "Innovation Restaurant" with "inspired" chicken flavors, various beverage options, and "fresh preparation" of menu items, Business First reported.
Thankfully it appears as if more details are beginning to come to light, and Eater Louisville snapped a photo of the logo for the restaurant, which will be called "KFC eleven." A job posting has appeared on CareerBuilder advertising the position of general manager, and a few prime details are revealed in it.
"We’ve taken the best part of KFC (you guessed it... the chicken...), and crafted it into simple, fresh tastes for today," the listing reads. "Flatbreads, sandwiches, salads and rice bowls share the menu with refreshing new drinks and indulgent sweets. And yet with all of this delicious, new food, we haven’t forgotten our roots — you’ll always be able to get the Colonel’s famous Original Recipe (r) Boneless chicken!"
That’s all there is for now, but this will likely represent a major step for the company, which has been looking to revamp its image recently. For all we know, this restaurant might even have sit-down service.
