Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in southern Indiana closes unexpectedly

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in southern Indiana closes unexpectedly

If you drove past Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen on Green River Road this week and thought it looked less crowded than usual, you’re right.

Sorry we are closed

Last Friday, July 5, 2024, I asked my husband to pick up a chicken sandwich and mac & cheese from Popeyes on the east side. In what I thought was a very “Liberty” moment, he told me they were closed. Closed at 5:00pm on a Friday afternoon, why?

Technical difficulties

A simple handwritten note explained that there were some technical problems and that opening would be possible again on Tuesday.

“I’m sorry, we have to close for technical reasons. We are not open until Tuesday.”

Notice update

I decided to check the status of the Popeyes on Green River Road today (Wednesday, July 10) and the same note is still hanging on the drive-thru window. This was around 12:30 p.m. There is no concrete date for reopening yet, but maybe a Tuesday in the future?

Smell the chicken

Strangely, I could smell chicken even though they were closed and there were handwritten notes on the doors! Maybe it just always smells good in this area.

Possible responses on social media

This question was asked in the public Facebook group “What’s Happening Evansville,IN?” There are many opinions on this, but the problem may be a lack of staff.
