Quick serve restaurant (QSR) chain KFC has opened its newest location, KFC Aura, on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, according to a report by the Sunshine Coast News.

Owned and operated by Collins Foods, KFC Aura celebrated a soft opening on 11 August. The grand opening is planned for this weekend.

This outlet at 4 Symonds Way, Baringa, will be led by restaurant manager Tyrone Lebeter. It will be open every day between 10am and 10pm.

The news publication quoted Lebeter as saying: “For locals who want to get their hands on the Colonel’s delicious Kentucky Fried Chicken from the comfort of their home, delivery will be available from late August.”

The new location is expected to create more than 60 new jobs in the region.

Lebeter added: “We’re passionate about building a strong and confident team to ensure we provide both the best customer service possible and quality Kentucky Fried Chicken to the people of Aura.
