Popeyes now open in Rock­mart

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - Staff re­ports

Those who have been wait­ing pa­tiently for the open­ing of the new Popeyes lo­ca­tion can now go en­joy lunch or din­ner at the Nathan Dean Park­way lo­ca­tion.

With­out fan­fare, the new res­tau­rant opened its doors to the pub­lic in re­cent days to be­gin serv­ing up Louisiana’s best here in Polk County. It marks the open­ing of the first of two lo­ca­tions to open lo­cally. Work is now un­der­way for the sec­ond lo­ca­tion in Cedar­town, re­plac­ing the old Wendy’s res­tau­rant closed sev­eral years ago.

The Rock­mart lo­ca­tion built by con­trac­tor CSC Prop­er­ties broke ground nearly a year ago with a goal in mind of a 120 day con­struc­tion sched­ule be­fore they opened, but de­lays in weather halted work in­ter­mit­tently through the process that be­gan in July 2017.

Popeye’s Chicken was founded in 1972 in New Orleans, and since has spread through­out the decades across the nation in com­pe­ti­tion with KFC.

Their menu not only fea­tures fried chicken, but also fried seafood, sand­wiches and more with a spicy, Ca­jun-style kick.

They al­ready have lo­ca­tions Rome, Cal­houn, Cartersvil­le, Dou­glassville, Hiram and all across the metro At­lanta area, among many oth­ers across Georgia.

Popeyes in Rock­mart is now open to the pub­lic on Nathan Dean High­way.
