Work began on Monday to demolish the former Denny’s restaurant building in the Timberhills Shopping Center, where a new KFC drive-through restaurant is planned.

Kim Campbell, community development specialist for the city, said the project applicants have yet to file anything that would indicate a timeline for the KFC’s completion.

Campbell said the latest thing they’ve filed is related to signage.

All Around Renovations, Inc., based in Woodbridge, is the contractor.

Harman Directors Investment owns the property and is based in Los Altos. The company owns the existing KFC franchise in Sonora and a number of others in the western United States.

The company has said it will move from the existing store into the new building as part of a strategy to move its franchises into property it owns.
