A BRAND new KFC has opened in Bournemouth today. 

The world-famous fried chicken restaurant opened a new site in West Village, Castlepoint on Friday, November 19.

The fast-food giant has created 40 new jobs in the community and there are still vacancies available for those yet to apply.

David Pickett, Centre Manager at Castlepoint Shopping Park said: “It’s great to be opening the doors of another new retailer to Castlepoint this month.

"We are excited to welcome KFC to Castlepoint and think it will fit in well amongst the other stores, offering a differing dining option for customers when visiting Castlepoint.”
