Popeyes Coming to Wappingers Falls, New York
Back in December of 2020, a plan was submitted to the Wappingers planning board to possibly bring a new Popeyes Louisiana Chicken to a vacant restaurant on Route 9.
After two years of nothing happening at the planned site, it looks like the plan has finally been approved by the planning board and according to Popeyes, they are ready to break ground this month on the new location. Once completed Popeyes will take over the former location of Romanelli's Restaurant and Pizzeria at 1490 Route 9, in the Hannaford Shopping Plaza.
Construction is set to begin before the end of October and if everything goes according to plan, they could be ready to open for business by the Spring of 2023. When this location is complete it will bring Popeye's restaurant count to six in the area. Wait there's more coming.....
