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.
