Is Popeyes heading to Erie County?

I heard we are getting a Popeye's chicken restaurant on U.S. 250? Is this true? Kathy from Sandusky

It's unlikely a Popeyes will come to the area, considering officials overseeing building and development in Perkins Township haven't been contacted by the chain's representatives.

"I have not heard about anything about Popeyes or any chicken business," township chief building official John Curtis said.

The closest Popeyes from Erie County are located in Oberlin and Toledo.

There's one in Ashland, too.

There was a Popeyes before. Why would it come back if it didn't succeed the first time. I know it would be a different location but still.

Huge change in demographics in Sandusky since the last time they were here.

They always put Popeyes restaurant in the worst areas of a town, not on the main strip.

why in the world would they put a fried chicken store in the worst area of town?

Fast food is a major draw in lower income community. Get a burger for a dollar, sounds like a good deal till the health effects kick in.
