THUNDER BAY — The fast-food restaurant sector in Thunder Bay is getting some new players.
Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen will open a location in the Thunder Centre on Fort William Road.
The City of Thunder Bay has received a building permit application for renovations to a vacant building adjacent to the Tbaytel store at 959 Fort William Road.
According to a city official, the space will be occupied by a Popeyes restaurant.
Popeyes was founded in New Orleans in 1972.
It is owned by Toronto-based Restaurant Brands International, which also owns the Tim Hortons and Burger King brands.
The city spokesperson said Tuesday that BarBurrito, which serves Mexican food, plans to open a location next door to Popeyes.
BarBurrito is also establishing a restaurant in Brentwood Village Mall on Arthur Street, the same property where Edo Japan will open a location.
