From time to time, I’ll make a trip to the cities to grab Popeyes, but thankfully I won’t have to do that much longer. After seeing rumors swirling last week about the chicken chain coming to Rochester, I reached out to the corporate office for a comment. They told me the rumors are true and that their "target date" for opening the new location is Q4. (Sometime between October and the end of the year) I was hoping for something more specific, but given everything that is happening in the world right now, I understand not wanting to commit to a specific day. I'm guessing we'll have a better idea of when the grand opening will be later this summer.

Rochester's Popeyes will be located off of West Circle Dr (55th St NW) just to the north of Walmart North. Hamilton Real Estate posted the picture below to give you an idea of where it'll be.
