Ready for a Popeyes restaurant? New Bedford Guide confirmed that a Popeyes is being planned for the Riverside Landing/Coggeshall Street are (Former Fairhaven Mills) near Market Basket. You’ve likely noticed the construction at the location.
Per the City of New Bedford Department of Planning, Housing & Community Development staff report for August 10, 2016 it will have 46 seats and nine parking spots:
“Under the proposed revision, the applicant requests site plan modifications necessary to allow for the
construction of a proposed 2, 265 +/- SF, one-story, forty-six (46) seat fast food restaurant known as
Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen. Nine (9) parking spaces are dedicated for the restaurant’s walk-in customers.
A multiple window drive-thru order and pick up lane, with by-pass to facilitate traffic circulation, is part of this development proposal.”
