After months of speculation, guessing and predictions by curious Severna Park residents about what will become of the former KFC location, the answer has arrived.
A Chick-fil-A representative has signed a lease on the property at 511 Ritchie Highway where a new restaurant will be built. The demolition of the old building and rebuild is expected to take about six to nine months.
The lease is contingent upon getting all the necessary building permits approved, said the source, adding that this is the normal process and there shouldn't be any problems.
The KFC in Severna Park closed in June 2011 finding many locals without a bucket of fried chicken to share. Speculation on what would become of the location stirred up many opinions in Patch's comments and Facebook page.
