The Oldest KFC In Penang Is Closing Down For Good After 32 Years Of Operation
It's the end of an era for one of the oldest and most iconic KFC outlets in Malaysia
On Friday, 15 March 2019, the KFC outlet in Jalan Larut, Penang will be serving its signature fried chicken for one last time after operating for over 30 years
A notice displayed at its front door (above) stated the fast food restaurant will cease operations permanently from Saturday, 16 March onwards.
It is believed that the landowner is planning to put the land up for sale and hence, will no longer be renting the space out to the fast food chain.
Established in 1987, KFC Larut - as it is affectionately referred to by Penangites - is the first KFC to set up shop in the northern state
As such, it holds a special place in many a Penangite's heart.
For over three decades, KFC Larut was the hangout spot for first dates, family days out, and of course, birthday parties.
Penang's oldest KFC branch particularly stands out for its unique architecture - the restaurant itself is housed within a 19th century colonial bungalow built by the British in 1830
Goodbye, KFC Larut! Thanks for all the childhood memories and fun times. :')
