That new concept KFC is testing on Bardstown Road will be called KFC eleven Business First reports, citing a job ad for the restaurant's general manager on Career Builder. "Flatbreads, sandwiches, salads and rice bowls share the menu with refreshing new drinks and indulgent sweets," according to the posting.
Insider Louisville also is reporting, "the new concept will include new cooking technology in an open kitchen, with the overall feel more casual dining than fast food. Unfortunately, sources confirm KFC 11 will not include alcoholic beverage sales like the Route 25 KFCs in Japan."
Here's how the new store is described in the job ad:
We're opening KFC eleven, a fast casual test store in Louisville, KY, for an exciting opportunity for GMs and Multi-unit District Managers who have excelled in their careers. We're looking for a passion for food, for people and fun! We're doing things differently and would like candidates with fast casual, full service or fine dining experience.
Be the First at the First
This position is for the first GM at the first test store. It's an exciting time to get in on the ground floor. The growth plan is aggressive and so a GM hired now could be a District Coach within 6-9 months. It'll be a wild ride! We're hiring soon so reply immediately if this fits you.
