Let’s Turn Back ToThose Good Times We’ve Had

For more than 3 decades, they’ve been faithfully serving patrons that have stepped into their outlet with the best that they have. It really saddens us all because this place has already found a place in our hearts. No matter the people stopping by for a quick meal or just hanging with friends over some finger-licking good fried chickens, it has brought joy over the years.

“I remember my dad used to bring me and my siblings to this KFC whenever it’s his payday. It was a sweet and nostalgic memory because there was the playground so we were able to play while enjoying fried chickens. We used to call it a Castle KFC because of its appearance. When I heard about the closing of this place, there goes my memory of my childhood days here.” said a fellow Facebook user, Alfa Ayfa.


Another one, Shanaz Shana said “This KFC is one of my favourite places for KFC. This KFC is the first place I brought my kids for fried chicken. A place that is full of fond memories, very upset that I can’t bring my kids to this KFC anymore. Wish that they will keep this historical building.”

The notice is put up at the glass door thanking their loyal customers for their support and invited them to visit other outlets that are nearby. This is for real now, goodbye!
