The Springfield City Commission approved the construction zoning of the chicken restaurant this week.

The building will be constructed in what is now the back portion of the Meijer parking lot, next to the south entrance to the grocery store.

The KFC will be located next door to a McDonald’s and Starbucks, which both sit at 1480 and 1490 Hillcrest Ave.

It is unclear when construction on the property will begin.

The restaurant will be the second in Springfield. The other is located at 2407 E. Main St. According to Clark County records, last October that location changed hands to a new owner for $2 million.
