You’ll have to find another stop to get a bucket of chicken on Evansville’s West Side.

The KFC in front of Shnucks is closed, and starting next Friday, so will the Taco Bell in the same building.

Contractor Charlie Radabaugh, with Restaurant Specialties, Inc., says renovations of the building will start around next Friday.

He says the building will be made into a new Taco Bell – minus the KFC.

Radabaugh didn’t want to give us a definite timeline, but the hope is to be back open by the end of August.

The former Burger King next door is still empty. Sources hope to have information on what could be moving into that building in the coming weeks.
