Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen brings its fried chicken and cookies to Ephrata Township.
The fried chicken fast food restaurant has leased 2,400 square feet of space at Ephrata Crossing, the new mall near Routes 322 and 222.
It will take up space in a building behind Chipotle and Jersey Mike’s, according to an announcement from Bennett Williams Commercial, which manages the Ephrata Crossing rental.
Popeyes offers mild and spicy fried chicken as well as seafood, sandwiches and sides such as jambalaya, green beans and macaroni and cheese.
In Lancaster County, Popeyes has a restaurant at 1401 Manheim Pike in Manheim Township and is developing a restaurant on the site of a former Pizza Hut at 2246 Lincoln Highway East in East Lampeter Township.
A representative for Popeyes did not respond to a question asking when the Ephrata Township and East Lampeter Township locations are expected to open.
Popeyes is an Atlanta-based restaurant chain with over 2,700 locations in the United States. It is owned by Restaurant Brands International, which also owns Tim Hortons, Burger King and Firehouse Subs.
