Popeyes, the world’s second largest quick-service chicken restaurant, is opening a new location in Kalispell.
The restaurant will be on 18th Street East near the GuestHouse Inn and Suites & Outlaw Convention Center.
Dennis Rehberg, a former Montana congressman, and his wife, Jan, own the franchise in Montana and previously opened the state’s first Popeyes in Billings in late 2014. The Rehbergs also opened a Burger King in Kalispell near the future location of Popeyes.
Popeyes serves Southern comfort food, including chicken, biscuits and mashed potatoes.
The arrival of Popeyes marks the latest new restaurant opening in Kalispell. Buffalo Wild Wings is planning to open its new location in Hutton Ranch in September. Chick-fil-A plans to open a new restaurant near Cabela’s in summer 2016.
In other development news, Marriot Springhill Suites submitted plans for a new hotel in the Spring Prairie site near Kidsports Complex. The hotel plans to open in spring 2016.
