The new Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen in Millcreek is set to open July 10 at 10 a.m.

It is located at 2600 West 12th Street.

Operators said Thursday they are currently training the crew.

For months, the restaurant appeared to be ready on the outside, but the doors remained closed.

Popeye’s was granted a license to open May 15 by the Erie County Health Department.

This will be the first location for the fried chicken fast food restaurant in the Erie area. It is being operated by Latif’s Fine Food Restaurant Inc.

There are more than 2,600 Popeye's in the U.S. and around the world. The restaurants feature a New Orleans-style menu with spicy chicken, chicken tenders, fried shrimp and other regional items.
