Media reports last week included Bridlington as one of the places set to get a restaurant as part of the company’s plans to open 500 more sites across the UK.
However, a spokesman for the company said that while Bridlington is on a wish list of places to operate a restaurant, there are no plans to open one at this time.
A KFC spokesperson said: “Sorry KFC fans of Bridlington. We hate to disappoint, but this list is only speculative – no current plans to open a new restaurant in your area.
“But as the list proves, we’re always on the lookout for new sites so who knows what the future holds.”
