IOWA CITY — Popeyes received approval last week from the Iowa City Board of Adjustment for a special exception to build a two-lane drive-thru with a new restaurant in the works.
The approval was the first hurdle to get the fried chicken chain into its first Iowa City location. It will allow city officials to evaluate site plans and designs.
The targeted spot is an empty former Pizza Hut at 1926 Keokuk St., according to the Iowa City Press-Citizen. Owner Jam Investments LLC will need city approval for its site plan before it can begin construction.
Jam Investments, based in Altoona, owns 14 other Popeyes in Iowa, including the closest one to Iowa City, at 750 Coral Ridge Ave. in Coralville.
