We've had a lot of questions about the KFC on Highway 54 in Owensboro. Folks have gone by and noticed no one there and a sign on the door.

But that KFC--the only one in Owensboro--is not closed permanently.

You may have already noticed construction crews on site. Well, that's because KFC will re-open, better than ever.

That's right. It's undergoing a major remodeling.

JRN, Inc. is a KFC franchisee and has purchased the Highway 54 location.

I spoke with JRN marketing executive administrator Frankie Bostick who told me that JRN, which operates more than 150 stores in 11 states, plans to remodel and improve the 54 KFC location.

The plan is to re-open the store in early 2020.
