The Colonel has closed the doors at the KFC on Route 35 in Neptune City.
Central Jersey's fast-food restaurant, formerly known as Kentucky Fried Chicken, was located for decades at the corner of 35 Third Ave. and Route 35.
This week, there is a sign on the chicken joint's door stating, “This restaurant is no longer open,”
The 2,400-square-foot retail space is currently listed as up for lease on LoopNet.
The Neptune City location’s official Facebook page is still active, and displays its newest menu item: donut sandwiches with fried chicken -- along with its ever-popular combination baskets.
There are over 50 KFC locations in New Jersey listed on KFC’s website. As of Friday, the Neptune City franchise's hours and location had not been deleted.
Kentucky Fried Chicken was founded in 1952 by Colonel Harland Sanders.
