KFC Returning to State College

Demolition of Santander bank at 1780 S. Atherton Street has begun to make way for the new KFC restaurant at the site. Centre County has been void of the national fried chicken restaurant for some time. A KFC was formerly located at 2020 N. Atherton St., but closed in the early part of the decade. Kranich's Jewelers opened a store at that site in 2012. Another KFC was also previously located at 1525 S. Atherton St., but closed in the early 2000s and is now the location of Sakura. The State College Borough planning department webpage says plans are for the restaurant to open this fall.
