FLINT TWP. — A newly opened Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen fast-food restaurant at 3066 Miller Rd. is the second one in Genesee County.
Billed as part of the second largest quick-service chicken chain, it moved into a building occupied for more than 40 years by a Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Popeyes offers a “New Orleans” style menu featuring spicy chicken, chicken tenders, fried shrimp and other seafood, as well as jambalaya, Red Beans and Rice.
About 70 people were hired to work at the newly-renovated building which was completely gutted and made over into the Popeyes design, according to a corporate spokesperson.
It joins a Popeyes restaurant at 4815 Clio Road in Flint which is also oper- ated by Brodersen Enterprises of Michigan.
Restaurant hours are 10 a.m. to midnight daily.
Popeyes is a division of Atlantabased AFC Enterprises.
The company celebrated its 40th anniversary this year. There are more than 2,000 Popeyes operating worldwide.
