It’s getting closer and closer to reality! The official website for Seasons Winnipeg has posted an image of Popeyes Chicken to indicate that it is coming soon!
It has been on many Winnipeggers lists of restaurants they would like to see come to Winnipeg. Popeyes has been in Canada since 1984 but has yet to come to Winnipeg.
There has been a pull back of chicken restaurants from the Winnipeg market in recent years. Both KFC and Winnipeg-based Chicken Delight have all retrenched a bit in the Winnipeg market.
Currently, the closest Popeye’s Chicken location to Winnipeg is in Fargo, North Dakota.
