New owners taking over a former KFC/A&W restaurant on Parvin Road near Brighton in the Northland wanted to convert it into a “better burger” fast food operation.

They planned to offer fresh Angus burgers at fast food prices. But customers missed their KFC and asked that fried chicken be added to the menu.

So Burgers & Chicks is scheduled to open in early January at 5018 N.E. Parvin Road. The local owners also plan to add more locations and perhaps franchise the concept.

Customers will be able to order burgers with a choice of ketchup, pickles, onions and mustard. Or they could go for one of the signature burgers like the Quacked Out (fresh Angus burger with fried egg, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise and mustard) for $4.49 or $6.49 for a combo.

Burgers & Chicks also will have a jalapeno burger, a grilled chicken sandwich, chicken strips, fish sandwich and fish fillets, as well as a children’s menu and more.

The operation, in the Holiday Hills shopping center at North Brighton, is scheduled to open in early January.

All traces of the KFC/A&W are gone, replaced by a contemporary bright white, yellow, black and red decor.

It will offer dine-in seating, as well as to-go and a drive-thru.
