FAST food chain KFC is eyeing up dozens of potential locations for further drive thru restaurants across our region.

KFC, which already has scores of drive thru restaurants across the region, is hoping to expand into a number of locations.

Brand new sites across County Durham and even one at St James' Park in Newcastle have been added to a list of 'target locations.'

Like a number of other major retailers, the fast food chain publishes a list of locations where they plan to set up shop next.

This list is regularly updated in line with demand and how popular the retailer believes one particular site could be.
