A KFC restaurant looks set to open in Sleaford in the coming months as a national chain launches its recruitment drive for new staff.

Eurogarages, based in Lancashire, has announced it is planning to open a new KFC restaurant at Sleaford. It currently runs businesses on the Holdingham roundabout on the A17 Sleaford bypass having acquired Little Chef in a deal in February this year.

According to recruitment site, Indeed, the company is seeking to employ a new General Manager for its ‘new restaurant’ offering a £35,000 salary.

A Eurogarages spokesman, Tom Jeremiah said it was “early days” and they were still in negotiations with KFC and had not yet had approval to use the franchise in Sleaford, but he confirmed the company was looking at converting the existing Little Chef restaurant at Holdingham if given the go-ahead.

He said: “There are no guarantees that it will happen, but we try to stay one step ahead of the curve because it takes six months to train a general manager.” This way they would not be waiting to train up staff if and when approval is given.
