    Anybody else think its strange/get the giggles driving by the Popeye’s Chicken/Church’s Chicken at this intersection? The way I see it, there are 2 more corners here so where is KFC and Lee’s Original Recipe?

    There was a 3rd, local joint I think on the same side as Popeyes.

    yes, that area was known as The Chicken District and one of them burned down.

    There’s a KFC down the block next to Wendy’s so that franchise is covered on that block. They’ve been doing some work on the corner where BFC was so I’m really hoping another chicken place goes in there.

    Anyone know what is going into the old Popeye’s location? It was supposed to be a Lee’s Famous and then it turned into Buckeye Fried. Hopefully, Lee’s is back in?

    A lot of permits being issued for renovation. They don’t seem to indicate what it is, but perhaps others will recognize the names involved.

    It is clearly more than a let’s swap the signs and call it something else renovation.

    Looks like a few of the signage permits indicate it’ll become a Burger King.

    Anyone want to invest in a Hot Chicken Takeover franchise?

    Yep, today I noticed that Burger King signs are now posted on the building. This will be more accessible than the one on W.5th Ave during lunch or dinner times on most days.
