A KFC-STYLE restaurant has submitted a planning application for a store in Oxford.
Popeyes opened its first UK store in London in November, with an application submitted to Oxford City Council for a store in Queen Street.

A cover letter written on behalf of Popeyes UK states: ‘The proposal is to undertake building operations associated with the conversion of the existing shop into a new Popeyes store.
“As part of the Popeyes fit-out, minor changes to the storefront are proposed to align with their branding and standard specifications.
“The changes to the storefront are minor and are seen as enhancing the building, bringing a clean, contemporary design to an already modern street scene.
“The proposed alterations to the storefront will not detract from the building’s original features, including existing structural columns and architectural details.”

According to the Popeyes website, the next closest store to Oxford is in Battersea.
The website states that “Popeyes’ British-sourced, Red Tractor-accredited chicken is cooked fresh daily” at its restaurants and is “never frozen.”
The restaurant offers vegan options, including a “100% Plant-Based Vegan Sandwich”.
Other items on the menu include Popeyes’ “Louisiana Signature Chicken”, hot wings, and a variety of milkshakes and sundaes.
The town planning application can be consulted on the town hall’s website, under reference 22/00374/FUL.
