Man’s plea to have KFC store 2 minutes from his house is successful

A man’s passionate plea to have a KFC built two minutes from his home has ended in spectacular success. 

Wayne Hutchings penned an impassioned plea to the Brisbane City Council urging them to ignore the ‘people objecting to the development’ because the line at another nearby store is ‘too long’. 

Brisbane City Council encouraged residents to write in and give their view on a proposed KFC and petrol station on Wynnum Road, Tingalpa, 10km east of Brisbane.

Wayne Hutchings’ passionate plea to have a KFC built two minutes from his home has helped to the proposed development being approved.

Mr Hutchings took them up on their offer and explained why it would be a good idea. 

‘I love KFC. This store will be two minutes from my home,’ the letter said.

Mr Hutchings was excited when he heard the development had been approved, The Courier Mail reported. 

‘It’s my favourite food group. It’s KFC or nothing, really, I’ll be happy to go down there and help the developer turn the sod of the first ground to get things going,’ he said.

He said when he wants to be a little bit healthier he peels the skin off the chicken and sometimes he reuses the chicken skin. 

‘My favourite is to take the skin off the chicken and wrap it around some chips,’ he said.

It comes as somewhat of a surprise for the development to be approved with councillor Ryan Murphy saying their were a number of people who opposed it.

He said the medical centre had some concerns about a KFC on the same site.

Some of the reasons people opposed the development included the odour and increased traffic in the area. 

However Mr Murphy said there were a number of benefits to approving the new location. 

‘There’s a really good opportunity for us to create local jobs that are so needed at this moment of time,’ he said.
