The new Popeye's restaurant construction is well under way and is expected to be completed by next month.

The building foundation and structure is already up and workers have already started on the inside layout. Once it is finished, the new restaurant will have several updates including a spice rack, self-serve drink stand, two bathrooms with two stalls, pictures on the walls and new lighting. The new eating area will be more spacious than the previous one. “It's going to be a lot more open,” General Manager Evelyne Dukes said. “It's going to really make our customers happy.” Once the new building is finished, they will tear down the old Popeye's building to create additional parking space. “The new building is scheduled to be finished by the first week in August if they don't run into any issues,” Dukes said.
