EAGLE ROCK — After the KFC at the corner of Eagle Rock Boulevard and Yosemite Drive closed in early June, residents craving Extra Crispy chicken or a box of Popcorn Nuggets have been forced to travel to neighboring Glendale or Highland Park to get their KFC fix. Now, there’s a big pile of debris outside the building as renovations are underway for a new tenant. What’s headed this way? A very slow-moving, pour-over coffee drive-thru? A vegan deli? Nope. It’s a Del Taco.
The Building & Safety Department website shows that permits have been issued to convert the KFC, located in the shopping center with the new a Sprouts market, into an approximatley 8,300-square-foot Del Taco. The Eastsider has contacted Del Taco for details.
Del Taco, which operates more than 500 outlets nationwide, will join several new fast-food chains that have opened in Eagle Rock in recent years including a Chipotle, Jersey Mike’s Subs and Habit Burger Grill.
Update: A Del Taco spokeswoman said the new Eagle Rock outlet is scheduled to open before the end of the year.
