If you have driven past the Green River Road location of Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen this week, and thought it looked less crowded than usual, you would be correct.

Sorry, We're Closed

Last Friday, July 5, 2024, I asked my husband to pick up a chicken sandwich and mac & cheese from the east side Popeyes location. In what I thought was a very 'Liberty' moment, he told me they were closed. Closed at 5:00 PM on a Friday afternoon, why?

Technical Difficulties

A simple hand-written note explained that they were having some technical difficulties, and would reopen on Tuesday.

"I'm sorry we are closed due to technical issues. we will not be open until Tuesday."

Note Update

I decided to check in on the status of the Green River Road Popeyes today (Wednesday, July 10) and the same note is still on the drive-thru window. This was around 12:30 PM. Now, there is no specific date to reopen, but maybe a Tuesday in the future?

Smell the Chicken

Strangely, even though they were closed, with handwritten notes on the doors, I could smell chicken! Maybe it just always smells good in that area.
