Portage la Prairie is going to be seeing more fried chicken come fall of 2019.
Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen will be opening up near the Portage Co-op. Jonathan Enright’s a franchise owner with Popeyes, who has development rights for Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario. When asked why Portage, Enright stressed they decided to do so because Portage has a lot going on right now, and they wanted to be a part of it.
“I think Portage is going to be a great community for us to join,” says Enright. “The stars aligned with Portage, there’s a great site there.”
He notes, the new location will employ nearly 70 workers, from an operating partner and management team to the front line and production staff. Once the Portage Co-op completes construction on a new building near the end of the summer in 2019, Enright will move forward with interior and exterior construction.
