KFC to close Kapiolani and Dillingham restaurants


KFC is closing two restaurants on Oahu, its Kapiolani and Dillingham Boulevard stores, on June 26 and June 30, respectively.

The owner, Kazi Foods, which operates 45 KFC and Burger King restaurants in Hawaii, said it did not renew leases at the two location.

The Kapiolani property, on the corner of Keeaumoku Street, was purchased by Walgreens and will be developed into a new Walgreens store. The Dillingham location lacked adequate access for drive-thru customers, Kazi said.

“We want to consolidate our operating costs and strategically engage our team and resources into our remaining restaurants,” said Hossein Djavadi, Kazi Foods general manager.

No jobs will be lost as a result of the closures. All full- and part-time employees were given the option to relocate to other Kazi restaurants, the company said.
