New Year, new openings for KFC
Date posted: February 7, 2018
2018 has started well for our client KFC, as, thanks to the hard work the Jephsons’ interior fit-out team put in just before the holidays, two new restaurants were opened up ready to start trading.
In Hounslow, West London, we completed a full shell-to-handover project on the High Street. The 93 cover restaurant is fitted out with KFC’s latest distressed wood finish furniture, and although there was serious pressure to make sure it opened before Christmas, the keys were handed over on December 22nd to the satisfaction of the client.
Further west in Worcester, Jephsons gave the KFC estate office the keys to a new drive-thru. This was another shell-to-handover project, but was in a less complicated location, which meant the whole K3 style fit-out, with its 102 covers, was completed in just over four weeks.
Project Manager, Andy Nixon, says both fit-outs presented challenges that the Jephsons’ team rose to overcome. “Working in London is never that easy, as time and space are under great pressure, but the lads really pulled out all the stops in Hounslow to make sure the restaurant opened in time for Christmas. Our experience of managing shell-to-handover drive-thru projects really paid off in Worcester. To complete yet another snag-free restaurant for KFC is a really good feeling for us and the customer,” said Andy.

"Coffee Lovers Group has been a Costa Coffee franchisee for several years now and we have won many awards for our stores. Our teams pride themselves in providing a memorable experience to every customer. However, providing a first-class service is not just about making sure the coffee is great, it’s also about ensuring we maintain high standards throughout the whole customer journey. That is why I have retained Jephsons for our refurbishments and interior fit-outs. Just like our store teams, Jephsons’ fit-out teams always pay attention to detail and are focussed on making sure quality is key to completing projects. They have a team of talented individuals from whom I appreciate receiving ongoing suggestions on how to improve store fit outs and reduce long term maintenance issues. They manufacture the fittings themselves which gives me confidence in their joinery and finishing. If you are a franchisee looking for an interior fit-out company who can deliver good quality at a reasonable price with great after service, then you should be talking to Jephsons.
