Day by day, the development of the new Millington Kentucky Fried Chicken is coming along smoothly. Located where Veterans Parkway turns into West Union Road across Highway 51, the new eatery will mark the return of the fast food chain to Flag City.
The Millington Municipal Planning Commission has unanimously approved engineering and final plats submitted for construction of a new KFC restaurant on Highway 51more than a year ago. Charles Goforth, planning consultant for the city, said the property will consist of three lots totaling approximately 3.6 acres in the southwest corner of the intersection of Highway 51 and West Union Road.
Two lots will front on the highway, and the third, in the rear, will face West Union. Goforth has said the KFC will be constructed on the “corner” lot, and the building’s “long side” will be parallel to West Union.
