Cook Out restaurants appear to be coming to Fayetteville, Hope Mills

Two new Cook Out restaurants appear to be coming soon to Fayetteville and Hope Mills. 

A subsidy of the Thomasville-based fast-food chain purchased the former KFC at 3002 Raeford Road on July 23 for $750,000, according to Cumberland County property records. 

Paris & Potter operated the Raeford Road restaurant, as well as 27 other KFC locations across the Carolinas. Co-founder Steve Paris said the company received a “tremendous offer” for the property. While the company closed the Raeford Road location, Paris said Paris & Potter is about to begin construction on a new KFC restaurant in Myrtle Beach. 

Cook Out also appears poised to open in the recently closed Country Fish Fry location in Hope Mills. Cook Out-Hope Mills, Inc. purchased the property at 3416 N. Main St., as well as a neighboring vacant lot, on July 27, according to county property records.
