Folks in Pleasant View, Tennessee will have to wait until Monday to get their 3-piece, extra crispy. That’s because the local Kentucky Fried Chicken will be closed on Easter Sunday.
“We will be closed Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017 to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” read a sign on the front door.
They also posted a Bible verse: “The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sin will be preached in his name. Luke 24:46-47).”
“We’ve been doing it for at least 11 years,” said Tamisha Martin, the manager of the KFC/Taco Bell. “Our franchise owner is a Christian and it makes me feel great that we can spend Easter Sunday at church and with our families.”
Jenn Fitz is one of their customers — and she also happens to be one of my readers. She sent me a photograph of the sign on the front door.
“Our customers love it,” Martin said. “We’re mostly a church-going town.”
It’s nice to know there’s a company that puts faith and family first!
