Herefordshire is not included in a swathe of new places around the country set to get a new KFC branch.

The chicken takeaway chain has announced more than 500 target locations for new branches.

But none of the potential sites is in Herefordshire.

KFC (otherwise known as Kentucky Fried Chicken) currently has branches in Stonebow Road, Hereford, and Ross Park, Ross-on-Wye.

Malvern is, though, among the target sites named. There is no KFC there are present.

A KFC spokesman said: “We have bold ambitions to have over 1,000 restaurants in the UK and Ireland by 2020.

“We have a number of different formats and designs that are suitable for all locations. We strive to work with local communities and business’ to bring some finger lickin’ chicken to towns and cities across the country.”
