The dining room of the Oak Hill KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) Restaurant, located at 120 Jackson St., reopened Tuesday, June 13, after a major renovation project had been completed.

Franchise Owner Marvin Payne told The Telegram Monday afternoon, "Crews assigned by KFC Corporation have spent the last two weeks renovating the building I built in 1986 in what the industry calls a scrape-and-redesign project."

Payne noted the changes include: A complete new dining room with a new floor, new furniture, a new drink machine, painted walls and much more. On the outside, the building has been totally repainted and new advertising lights have been added. Additionally, the awning and some overhangs on the building have been removed, giving a better view from State Route 93.

In Oak Hill, the KFC location is not only popular as a dine-in eatery, but also as a handy takeout and catering option. While the dining room was closed during the renovation project which began May 30, drive-thru service was maintained.

A major part of the renovation reflects a historic theme, as there are many tributes to franchise founder Colonel Harlan Sanders.

Sanders became one of the most iconic restaurant owners in the world since opening his first store in Corbin, Kentucky. Although he died in 1980, the colonel's image has lived on in animation, actors' impersonations, advertising reproductions and his picture is still is on every chicken bucket sold by KFC today.

Payne noted he is happy with the project and believes it is a good reinvestment in Oak Hill.

He also says there will be an official Re-Grand Opening event to be held in the next few weeks. He thinks the new-look building is attractive and very functional for the customer and community as well.

"I think this building is visible and the paint scheme is really attractive and will help our business," said Payne.
