KFC, CVS reach agreement on property

January 22, 2015

Kentucky Fried Chicken, located at 609 Military Road in Benton, will begin to make the transition to its new location at the end of this month, according to franchisee Mark Fikes.

“We should start site prep by the 29th or 30th,” Fikes said. “Completion should be by June.”

The move is in compliance with a recent buyout of the current KFC property by CVS Pharmacy.

“CVS wanted to locate there, and there were some other people involved,” Fikes said. “We went through the process and we decided it would be best for everybody and for the city of Benton if we moved.”
