Alliance Bank in Sulphur Springs

New Popeyes Under Construction

September 1, 2023 – Anyone who is an afficionado of fast food will find favor that construction crews are working feverishly to finalize the latest offerings of deep-fried fowl. Popeye’s was granted a building permit in the amount of $1,141,500 from the city of Sulphur Springs on August 2, 2023 with excavation and foundation work beginning soon after as lack of rain has allowed crews to make quick work of the project. The new location will be located on Shannon Road between the Mockingbird intersection and new McAlister’s restaurant.

Popeyes also known as Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Inc. has been on an expansion binge since they announced they would add 200 new stores back in 2022. The chain currently has 2,988 Popeyes locations in the United States. Texas has the most Popeyes locations with 408 restaurants, which is about 14% of all Popeyes locations in the US. An additional 800 locations are located outside of the United States. The company formed in 1972 in New Orleans, Louisiana and headquartered in Miami. It is currently a subsidiary of Toronto Canada based Restaurant Brands International which was a new company formed in 2014 as the result of the merger between Burger King and Canada’s Tim Horton Coffee. The conglomerate also owns the Firehouse Subs chain.

Other types of “Popeyes” fans should not be looking for spinach on the menu of the upcoming restaraunt as the restaurant was NOT named after your favorite cartoon sailor. Nor will they have olive oil on the menu, as you may have to opt for one of their other signature sauces. “Well, blow me down!”

Those looking for employment will soon be able to apply online at as the new location is listed on their website but the application portal has not yet been activated.
