FORT PAYNE, Ala. — Citizens of Fort Payne and the surrounding areas are abuzz as a Popeyes sign was placed in what was formerly the Hardee’s restaurant, located on Glenn Blvd SW, today.
Popeyes was founded by Alvin C. Copeland and has been around since 1972. The Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen Chicken Sandwich became famous in 2019 and started a food war with their competition.
Mayor Larry Chesser and Council President Brian Baine could not confirm on record the deal between the chain restaurant and the City of Fort Payne.
Southern Torch will update as more information becomes available.
