The Colonel Gets a Facelift

Tulsa-based Southwest KFC Management Co. LLC has unveiled a newly redesigned KFC restaurant at 7180 S. Memorial Drive.
Denis Schoenhofer, president of Southwest KFC, owns 11 Tulsa-area KFC locations and has spent more than $3 million renovating the restaurants since his 2003 relocation from Wichita to Tulsa.
Schoenhofer owns 38 restaurants in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, New Mexico and Colorado.
The new restaurant will feature high ceilings, tile floors, padded booth seating, upscale tables and chairs, and renovated restrooms and lighting in the attempt to go from “fast food” to “fast casual.”
Louisville-based Yum! Brands Inc. owns the KFC franchise, which is the world’s largest restaurant company in terms of system restaurants with more than 34,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries. Yum! Brands owns KFC, Long John Silver’s, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell brand names and generated more than $9 billion in total revenues, including company sales and franchise fees in 2005.
