The new 260sq metre ‘drive-thru’ restaurant incorporates a progression of the chain’s new fast-casual-inspired design concept that was created by KFC’s in-house design team, in a bid to modernise the appearance of their restaurants and give them a more informal and stylish feel.
Various design elements include rustic timber plank kitchen tables and low-hanging copper lighting, exposed ceilings, textured brick-effect walls and photographs and illustrations from commissioned artists. The previous strong use of the red colour of the KFC brand has been used more subtly as an accent colour, appearing in features such as chair legs and graphics. The new design also includes semi open-plan kitchens, allowing customers visual access to the food preparation process.
Evesham is the latest in the continual roll-out strategy for the KFC, with our architecture team working closely alongside the brand as Lead designer and contract administrators for the UK expansion scheme.
