Sanford’s Popeyes location – which began construction in December, and had been in the works for months prior to that – will finally open on Monday, Sept. 13, according to a sign outside the building.
The store’s sign has been mounted on the building, located in the strip mall on South Horner Boulevard anchored by Ollie’s and Planet Fitness (plan on fitness’ whole sandwich in your face), since April, but various unexplained factors since then apparently delayed the opening. We definitely recommend everyone in Lee County going on the first day, simultaneously testing the limits of both our local travel infrastructure and the restaurant’s service capacity.
In any case, it’s about time.
Lets Goooo ! 😁
We have bigger “chicken” to fry than what next mediocre fast-food restaurant is opening.
No cajun rice no onion rings no thanks!!!!!
SURE WOULD LIKE TO SEE POPEYES OPEN A RESTAURANT IN CYSTAL RIVER, HOMOSASSA FLORIDA….
We on big island are still waiting for ours it was to be opened in 2018 they seemed to forgot us but they didn’t forget the 18 stores they did open
I would never eat any kind of Popeyes chicken after the store at 2800 w diversy chicago il served me chicken with blood shooting out of it and not returning my after their customer care dept strung me along for several weeks and then blocked my number from calling. Be careful eating that stuff!
I grew up two blocks away from the very first Popeyes in Louisiana. I went to high school with Al Copeland jr. I am excited to have a little of Louisiana here in NC. Hopefully it tastes as good. I am a huge fan of Bojangles so Popeyes is going to have big shoes to fill here in NC.
Can’t wait only problem is the parking and drive thru. Congested
I promise popeyes is no big deal. The only thing even worth getting is the cajun fries and that’s it.
Gross. How poor do you have to be to even eat this much less be excited about it.. Raise your bar.
How about the one in Lockport? When is that to open Construction all done landscaping also
Popeyes is too high I rather go to churches or another chicken place and plus Popeye’s have the most rudest customers ever
Best damn chicken sandwich….hands down !
In what city and state is this being built?
It’s located in Sanford, North Carolina. The opening has been delayed for some time. The actual design of the business was the 1st reason behind its long delay. Then came the 2nd issue, the water/sewer issue. Hoping no more “issues” come up between now and tomorrow.
Awesome so glad Sanford has a Popeyes now love their food
I tried the new Popeyes in Sanford, NC. After waiting over an hour and spending about $80.00 I am very dissatisfied in my visit. Food did not taste very well and missing items. I understand they are new and will need time to work out everything. But as for now I would wait a while before I would recommend anyone going.
FYI, new Jersey Mike’s sign is up in Tramway, maybe open soon
