Opening Wednesday: Popeyes on North Rock Road

Wichita’s fifth Popeyes is scheduled to open at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in the former Taco Tico spot at 3131 N. Rock Road.

The building has been remodeled, done and ready to go for a whiles now, and on Memorial Day, the manager was stationed in front of the building, intercepting would-be customers who assumed the restaurant was already open.

Popeyes, which specializes in spicy fried chicken, will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Wednesdays and from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays.

Wichita’s other Popeyes are at 1211 N. Broadway, 1623 S. Seneca, 4232 W. Central and 1350 N. Hillside.
