Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen got Oakwood’s OK Monday night to build a 46-seat restaurant at Cedar Ridge Drive off Winder Highway/Ga. 53 and at the entrance to Walden at Oakwood apartments.

The Oakwood City Council voted June 10 to approve the site plan for the fast-food restaurant serving fried chicken, fish and side items.

Christie Sims of Norcross-based Hayes, James & Associates, the project’s engineers and land planners, has said the restaurant could open in spring 2020, with construction starting in early fall.

The eatery, also just south of the Publix-anchored shopping center off Winder and Atlanta highways, would have a drive-thru and access from Cedar Ridge Drive or Cedar Ridge Lane, which runs from Cedar Ridge Drive to the shopping center.
