THE proposed KFC restaurant in Farnworth has moved a step closer to opening.

Signage has been installed around the building with the iconic image of Colonel Sanders adorning the front.

A tall drive-thru sign has also been installed on the pavement next to Albert Road, clearly signposting the restaurant to drivers and pedestrians as they approach.

It is set to create 40 jobs and on their website, vacancies for cooks, team leaders, team members are being advertised.
