For many years CESI has provided services for KFC restaurant locations throughout the Concord and Kannapolis area for JRN, Inc. This recently completed facility replaced a pre-existing, outdated KFC restaurant that was located further north on South Cannon Boulevard. The existing store was a high grossing location, so the wisest option was for the replacement to be located nearby. CESI spent several years extensively working with the owner to identify a suitable site providing due diligence and site analysis.
The new site was a multiple parcel property at the northeast corner of South Cannon Boulevard and Fairview Street, with some occupied and vacant parcels. Extensive efforts to combine the existing properties into one parcel for use as a restaurant were required. CESI provided engineering guidance and surveying support as well as geotechnical evaluation of all the properties.
Seating ninety, this new facility is one of the largest stores that KFC currently builds.
