A few of the changes at Psycho Donuts include longer hours, a new web site, and new recipes. The store has added music to its existing theme; there is a “Psycho Music Studio” complete with a Fender guitar and amp available for customer use; The “Psycho Pspeaker” where a visitor can hook up one’s iPod in and share music. Several of the donuts have been renamed in honor of the Fender Guitar in store. For example, the Super Glazed donut has been renamed, “Glazed and Confused.”

The hours have been extended. They are now open until 5 pm Sunday to Thursday, and until 8 pm on Friday and Saturday.

All donuts are now cooked (“bathed” in Psycho lingo) in trans-fat free oil. A new vegan donut, called “We Been Vegan” has been added to the menu. Also unnamed source reports that a new Secret Menu will be starting soon!

The KFC at 1805 South Winchester Boulevard has been closed while it undergoes considerable renovations which will include the addition of a Long John Silver’s fish restaurant.

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.
