The ground is being cleared just North of Casa Mana and a beautiful sign it out front. KFC is coming soon to the Lake Charles area!

The chain that earned its rep with the Colonel and his Original Recipe is coming back. It used to be in Lake Charles where the Hardee's is now. It's new location on Ryan Street will be the only somewhat fast food place of its kind in that particular area of Lake Charles. I always wondered why there wasn't a fast food place in that area. Once you pass Prien Lake, you're screwed on fast food until you get to Broad and 14.

No news yet as to when it's opening, but it shouldn't be long!
