Albany, GA / Courtney Highfield

FOX 31 has reported to you the closing of Maryland Fried Chicken on East Oglethorpe Boulevard and Friday we found out what's taking it's place.

The new restaurant, King's Fried Fish & Chicken, is expected to open in two weeks.

Owner Mustafa Mansour has high hopes for the new restaurant, "It's a busy area," he says, "A lot of traffic and it's got a college right down there and it's got many churches and downtown. I think it's a good area."

Mansour plans on hiring about eight people for the new restaurant and says if interested you can swing by and pick up an application from him.
