The New KFC drive though opened this week in Ballyhackamore.  Local residents had been vocal in their objections to the new store but the Plannings Appeal Committee earlier this year overturned a previous decision by the Department of Environment Planning Service to refuse planning permission.

Michael Herbert, owner of Herbal Restaurants tried to allay residents’ fears.

“This is a new generation store and we’ve tried to blend the building into the local area,” he said. “We’ve used noise abatement and other special equipment which deals with odours and have erected the building in record time with the help of McLaughlin and Harvey.”

Carrickfergus-based McCue Fit-Out helped furnish the store, and said it has worked with Herbal Restaurants for over 30 years.

“Our partnership began in 1981 with one of Herbel Restaurants’ first outlets in Dunmurry and both firms have excelled together since,” Les McCracken, Managing Director of McCue Fit-Out said.

“In any industry, 30 years is a long time to sustain a business relationship and this is one worth celebrating.”

    It is sad that this outlet was allowed to open beside a girls school. I enjoy KFC, but as an adult I am aware of the unhealthy ingreadients involved in its production. I do have it once in a while, I can be caught out when I smell the cooking whilst passing a KFC establishment. A KFC immediately beside a school is wrong. The smell is a constant advert towards the unhealthy product. In America they are now selling KGC in an attempt to make the product seem more healthly. I wonder what the facts are?

    Ballyhackamore had a KFC for many years. I don't understand the outcry about another one popping up one block away.

  5. Paul says:

    Smells awful. Get your act together, needs proper filters.

  6. Lee says:

    Horrible place… Food terrible and service not great either! Need to train their staff a bit better!

      to be fair to it, it tastes the same as any other KFC. I didn't find the food was terrible. I enjoy the odd zinger burger, and theirs seem as nice as anywhere. Not sure why you would say its a horrible place. Are you a disgruntled employee or something? ;-)
