POPEYES OPENING NEXT THURSDAY

The wait is nearly over for Andalusia natives for Popeyes’ doors to open.

According to area manager Mary King, Popeyes will open Thu., March 12.

“We are hard at work training our employees Tuesday and Wednesday,” King said. “We will then have a grand opening on Thursday.”

In June 2019, The Andalusia City Council approved a five-year, 2 percent sales tax rebate to help offset the cost of bringing the fast-food restaurant to Andalusia.

City Council Pro Tem Terry Powell said the business would invest more than $1 million in building the restaurant and would hire an estimated 60 employees.

According to the Popeyes website, the company distinguishes itself with a unique New Orleans style menu featuring spicy chicken, chicken tenders, fried shrimp and other regional items.

It is one of the largest quick-service restaurant chicken concepts in the world with more than 2,600 restaurants throughout the world.
