It may not be Popeye's favourite food, but Popeyes Chicken is hoping to open its doors to its new North Bay Restaurant in late September, BayToday has learned.

Officials with the restaurant say the new location will open on September 28, 2022.   

The Popeyes Chicken restaurant is located along Lakeshore Drive near the North Bay Mall.  There are a number of other new eating establishments connected to the newly constructed building including a new Burger King restaurant.

Popeyes Chicken got its start in Louisiana in 1972 and eventually expanded to Toronto in 1984. 

In 2019, Popeyes Chicken celebrated opening its 200th store in Canada.  

"We continuously draw upon and celebrate this heritage to inspire new, authentic menu creations the world craves," Popeyes Chicken states on its website.  

"Popeyes distinguishes itself with a unique New Orleans style menu featuring spicy chicken, chicken tenders, fried shrimp and other regional items. This unique and flavourful food has allowed Popeyes to become one of the world’s largest chicken quick service restaurants, with over 3,300 restaurants in North America. And around the world."

Oh, and as for the video below, Popeyes Chicken got some great publicity on Canada's Family Feud in 2020 due to this priceless response.
