Empire Completing Construction of New KFC in Town of Clay, NY

Empire Commercial Construction, a retail and small-project division of Regional General Contractor Taylor – The Builders, was awarded the contract for construction of the new Kentucky Fried Chicken location in the Bayberry section of Clay, NY. Empire is teaming with Cincinnati-based Nelson Architecture & Interiors and a national developer for design and renovation of the existing 2,600-square-foot stand-alone restaurant located at 7601 Oswego Road (Route 57), Clay, NY. Construction is nearing completion, with opening slated for the end of January, 2022.

“Empire is excited to further our relationship with KFC, while establishing another with the development team,” said Empire President, Jayne Penepent. “We are pleased to support KFC’s expansion and addition of new restaurants in our state, bringing with them many years of quality, affordable food and excellent service.”

Empire is breathing new life into the 2,600-square-foot stand-alone former Bruegger’s Bagels shop in Clay, NY. The building is receiving a complete renovation on the interior and exterior during the conversion. When completed, the Clay location will join existing nearby locations in DeWitt, Cicero, Liverpool and Syracuse, NY.

Not new to the fast-food world, Empire recently completed three contracts for ground-up construction of the first KFC restaurant locations in Hamburg, Horseheads and Gates, NY, while also completing three contracts for its fellow Yum! Brands company Taco Bell in Perinton, Henrietta and New Hartford, NY.
