Another Popeye’s restaurant set to open in CNY this week

Cicero, N.Y. — Central New York’s newest Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen will open Friday in Cicero.

The fast-food restaurant known for its crispy chicken sandwiches will open at 10 a.m. at 7980 Brewerton Road, just west of Dairy Queen. This location has a drive-through window and a parking lot that accommodates 19 vehicles.

Liberty Restaurants Holdings is a Popeyes franchisee headquartered in New York City. President and CEO Laddi Singh and his brother Rana Kaknia are planning to bring more than 30 Popeyes restaurants to Upstate New York in the coming years.

This is the fourth Popeyes in the Syracuse area, with stores on Erie Boulevard East and on Brewerton Road in Clay. Popeyes opened a restaurant in Township 5 last November. Liberty will be opening a restaurant on Marshall Street by the end of the year. Unique Development, a Syracuse general contractor that has built over 300 restaurants since 1987, is building the restaurant.

The Cicero location is looking to hire workers including shift managers. Anyone interested can email Josh@LRHOLDINGS.US.
