The Celebration, FL-based Celebration Restaurant Group plans to open two KFC/Pizza Hut combo restaurants in the Orlando area, expanding the brands’ Central Florida footprint.
Celebration Restaurant Group Marketing Director Meghan Osborn tells What Now Orlando that one restaurant will be located at 8557 W Irlo Bronson Hwy in Kissimmee. The other will be located at 939 N Central Ave in Umatilla. Both combo restaurants, operating under the same parent company Yum! Brands, will provide the same offerings at each location. Both locations are expected to open by December 2022.
Founded by Colonel Sanders in Corbin, Kentucky in 1930, Kentucky Fried Chicken (most commonly referred to as KFC) has become perhaps the most recognizable and ubiquitous global fried-chicken brand, with over 24,000 stores in 145 countries around the world.
Pizza Hut was founded in Wichita, Kansas in 1958 and has become a global fast-casual pizza brand with over 18,000 stores in 100 countries around the world. As both brands are operated by Yum! Brands, it is common to see combo restaurants such as these throughout the United States.
