Popeyes Opening On 48th Street/Northern Blvd


June 14, 2016 By Michael Florio

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is coming to 48th Street near Northern Boulevard.

The popular chain restaurant, which is known for its fried chicken, is ready to open at 32-78 48th St. However, it is waiting to schedule final inspections with the utility companies, according to Fiona Zhang, a representative for the contractor.

The restaurant will open once that process is complete, Zhang said.

Other Popeyes in Queens include one at 89-30 Queens Blvd. in Elmhurst, near the Queens Center Mall and another at 96-23 57th Ave. in Corona, according to the company’s website.

The 48th Street location was previously Color Master Flooring.

The owner could not be reached for comment. Popeyes did not respond to a request for comment.

Very immature comment about crime rate and it is quite inflammatory. Don’t talk about things you don’t know. I happen to be involved with the shelter and have met some very nice people. Why don’t you volunteer for something. You might change your mind.

Who ever made that comment about the crime rate rising be cause of the opening of a Popeye’s Franchise is diluional! Many restaurants and stores opened in the neighborhood and the area is still one of the safest in queens.Get a grip!!!!


It’s been a while since I’ve eaten KYC,

But, when I would get a “craving” and go there, immediately afterwards I’d be like “why did I do that to myself?!?”


lol…Thank you for making me laugh..i know the feeling…If you are in the area give it a try,,its not that bad and no I do not work for them hehehe


They need more places like this in Astoria. Everything opening up is just too expensive especially when you have children and want a quick bite to eat.

move while you still can !!!

great ! this will be a magnet for you know who ! get the beat cops ready boys crime is about to skyrocket in this neighborhood ! they should have a shuttle bus for the westway residents they’ll absolutely love it !
