A mysterious sign stating a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant is coming to the vacant block at the Narooma roundabout appears to be a hoax.
The sign stating “Coming Soon! KFC So good” appeared sometime on Wednesday, attached to star pickets with cable ties.
By Thursday morning, the sign had been torn down, broken in half and the image of Colonel Sanders stabbed several times.
The Narooma News contacted the owner of the block, now retired Dr Jenny Wray, who knew nothing of the sign and said there were no immediate plans for the block, formerly the site of the Ampol service station.
She said rather than any fast food outlet, she had been hoping some form of medical associated business could be built to complement the adjacent Lighthouse Surgery that she sold recently.
The owners of the Lighthouse Surgery also knew nothing about the sign and had been receiving several calls about its mysterious appearance.
The sign had also caused some concern for the owners of the newly opened chicken shop just down the highway on the Narooma Flat.
