A popular fast food chain could open drive-thrus in North Somerset next year.
KFC has confirmed it is looking to build a drive-thru 'around the Clevedon and Portishead area', although a specific site has yet to be confirmed.
The closest restaurant to people of North Somerset is at the Gordano Service Station, just off junction 19 of the M5. There is also a drive-thru at the Gallagher Retail Park in Weston.
KFC has plans to open a further 1,000 restaurants in the UK and Ireland by 2020, with 18 'target locations' in the South West including a site in West Wick, near Worle.
Worle's Homebase store will close in December and could be split into three retail units, with KFC under offer to fill one of the spaces.
