Miss Millies coming to Yate Shopping Centre

Date Posted:31/01/2020

One of the West Country’s favourite quick service brands is set to open in Yate Shopping Centre in the near future.

Miss Millies Fried Chicken, which was founded by the businessman who brought the  KFC brand to the UK, is due to open in the vacant 5-6 North Parade with fit-out scheduled to start in March.

Andrew Lowrey, Centre Manager, said: “It’s great to welcome Miss Millie’s chain to the Centre, a well-established local brand. A variety of restaurants is an essential part of the Shopping Centre’s portfolio and Miss Millie’s will bring the bonus of take-away and a 40 seater sit down restaurant.

“The premises is in a high-profile location and has a history as a take-away outlet having previously been occupied by Hotcha”.

Miss Millie’s is a local business with roots in the industry stretching back to 1965 when the late Chairman Harry Latham set up KFC in the UK, before opening stores in the South West in 1988 under the Miss Millie’s brand. Harry and Colonel Sanders were very good friends, so much so that the name Miss Millie’s was given in honour of the Colonel’s eldest daughter Mildred. Mildred was famous for wearing of large framed spectacles, which the new branding depicts.

25 jobs will be created when the store starts trading and it will open daily from 11am until late and home deliveries will be available in the near future.
