Popeyes plans to take over 14 Twin Cities' metro KFCs

| No Comments

National food chain Popeyes will face a bankruptcy judge next month to takeover 28 Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants nationwide, 14 of which are in the Twin Cities' metro area, the Star Tribune said.
The 14 planned restuarants would join the only Popeyes restaurant in the metro on Lake Street in south Minneapolis, the Burnsville Patch said.
KFC, a bankrupt franchise, intends to be involved in the possible takeover process, the Star Tribune said. The company, as reported in the Star Tribune, "intends to make every effort to see that as many restaurants as possible continue to operate as KFC restaurants with the same employee teams but under new ownership," the company said.
AFC Enterprises, Popeyes' parent company, has agreed to pay Wagstaff Management, KFC's owners, $13.8 million for the 28 locations nationwide, the Star Tribune said. The other 14 locations are in California, the Star Tribune said.
