Popeye’s on Delancey Replaced by the ‘Fried Chicken House’
This image has been archived or removed.
Now this is a bit unexpected. The Popeye’s chicken franchise eatery on Delancey has been replaced by a generic knockoff called the “Fried Chicken House.” What’s funny is that the new establishment, which debuted yesterday, still has some of its predecessor’s menu advertisements in the window. Also, its banner branding is now in place outside the entrance.
Popeye’s closed rather suddenly a couple weeks ago, and its bilingual signage was scrubbed from the exterior. A handwritten note in the door informed customers that the location was closed for some unspecified violation, but that they’d soon return. Well, it kinda did…
Popeye’s first opened at 108 Delancey back in 2008, taking the place of the KFC/Taco Bell combo. For a minute, though, this location was rumored as the maiden Lower East Side location for H&M.
Anyone wanna put a wager on how long this fast food restaurant will last here on Delancey?
