KFC in the Falls to be a Krispy Krunchy Chicken, Decision for Stow Location Still Unknown

The restaurant will remain open, but if it's still a KFC is still unknown.

The Cuyahoga Falls KFC is set to become a Krispy Krunchy Chicken, but the future of the in Stow is still up in the air. 

"In 2010, KFC sued , Gita Rao and Ganesh Rao Ponneri, alleging copyright infringement and breach of contract. KFC said the franchise failed to pay about $175,000 in royalties and advertising fees," according to an Akron Beacon Journal story.  In March, Rao's Hospitality and KFC Corp. received a settlement in U.S. Bankruptcy Court and the restaurants were ordered to close by May 31, 2012 at midnight. 

The Cuyahoga Falls KFC already closed and will be leased to be a Krispy Krunchy Chicken. But, the Stow location that was remains open. 

"The renovations were mandated by KFC corporate, said Peter Paul, human resource director for Rao's Hospitality. Paul said Rao's spent approximately $370,000 on the Stow restaurant's recent facelift. 'We plan to keep it open,' he said, adding that whether the restaurant will remain a KFC remains to be seen," according to a Falls News Press story.

If these people are the same owners of the former KFC on W. Market St. near Acme, he most likely is CORRECT. They were always out of most chicken by 6PM, claim they had no more to fry , try to sell you the odds & ends left in the warmer and usually were also out of most side dishes. We tried it 4 different times and have finally given up. Better off to drive to the Valley to Fiesta Pizza for their chicken, but allow yourself some extra time as they are usually behind. Or else try Popeye's on N. Howard St., but be careful of people hanging around in the parking lot. Their food is usually hot and fresh. It's a shame we can't get a decent chicken dinner here on the West Side of Akron w/o driving a distance!

Weird that this story popped up in my current Stow news feed. Krispy Krunchie Chicken lasted about one month here-the food was awful! I even heard that one day they remained open, even though they ran out of chicken! I personally LOVE fried chicken, and was glad to give them a shot. But one visit was enough. They didn't make it very long here in stow. The good people of cuyahoga falls can get themselves fried chicken from some of the local pizza shops, and they wont make it there either!

Jim may- How presumptious of you to say I have a negative view on everything. Before you make insulting remarks two things: 1 you should have eaten at the chicken place 2. You do not know me, I do not know you so it is a real stretch for you to make statements like that. If you have eaten at that krispy chicken in Stow and liked it, which now is closed, you are very easily pleased. I only hope that you allow honest opinions here. After all that is what this thing is about. There are lots of things I am positive of and that you are wrong is one of them.
