Located at the corner of South Winchester and Latimer, the KFC has been under construction for several months. Documents from the City of Campbell show that the Planning Commission orginally approved the remodel of the existing fast food restaurant to accommodate a dual brand fast food restaurant (KFC /A & W) in December 2007. In August 2008 the developers changed their plans to build a combination KFC / Long John Silver’s.

The business owner was concerned that there was an oversaturation of the KFC / A&W brand in the area. There is currently a KFC / A&W location at the corner of Basom and Curtner. There was a dedicated A&W, closed several years ago, at 2145 South Winchester Boulevard.

Long John Silvers offers mostly deep fried fish and seafood. Freshside Grille is a new menu option which is fish prepared grilled instead of deep fried. Freshside Grille is only available at participating locations. It is not known if 1805 South Winchester Boulevard is a location that will participate.
