New Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen Location Coming To South Portland
You've probably seen the commercials countless times and now you'll get to try Popeye's as they open a new location right outside the Maine Mall.
Louisiana fast! It's hard to imagine you haven't seen at least one commercial featuring the Popeye's lady telling you all about their latest deals and concoctions honey! But if you've ever sat there and wondered, why am I seeing this commercial? There's no Popeye's location around here...that's about to change.
If you've been in the Maine Mall area, you've probably noticed construction crews working on the old building that housed Tim Horton's and Coldstone Creamery before it went out of business. That location, at 291 Maine Mall Rd, closed more than a year ago. But it will be the home of the first stand alone location of Popeye's in southern Maine. There is another Popeye's location operational in southern Maine currently, at the Kennebunk service plaza.
As of this writing, there's been no official opening date. But signage has gone up and jobs have been posted on LinkedIn if you're savvy enough to dig for them. Soon you'll be able to get your hands on all of their southern-inspired dishes with cajun flare.
With a Popeye's on the horizon, that leaves very few major chain restaurants in America without a location in Maine. Golden Corral, Sonic and Hardee's comes to mind. What's next?
