One of the oldest and most iconic KFC buildings in Malaysia will be serving its signature fried chicken for the last time on 15th March 2019 after operating for more than 30 years.
Located in Jalan Larut, Penang, the KFC which is often dubbed as KFC Castle is the first KFC outlet in Penang, and is known for its unique architecture.
Established in 1986, the fast food chain is set up in a heritage building built during the British colonial in the year 1830. The building has preserved its iconic exterior for more than 3 decades with minor renovation and rectification.
According to Penang Kini, the owner of the building has decided to stop renting the space to KFC and use it for a different project.
Many Penangites are saddened by the news as the building holds many fond memories for the young and old alike.
