Look at those magical words.

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.
