Back in June, I was surprised to see that the KFC on Princeton Hightstown Road in East Windsor, NJ suddenly closed.

If you don't know the area of East Windsor, next to the Target is a Perkins Restaurant, and there used to be a KFC there as well. I say used to back in June, it just closed without any warning and residents are wondering why.

After seeing all that the KFC signs were gone and construction had already begun, I decided to do some investigative work. I turned to the Next Door app and there happened to be a post about the KFC.

My neighbors on the Next Door App say it was going to be a Popeye's and sure enough, today when I drove by, I can confirm, it will be a Popeye's.


The workers were very busy, so I did not get to ask them if there was an opening date. I'm sure we will hear soon, and I promise to keep you updated as soon as I find out more details.
East Windsor has pretty much everything in town, Shoprite, Aldi, Target, pizza places, nail salons, and so much more. All of these businesses were one of the reasons why my husband and I decided to buy in East Windsor.

I am super excited to be welcoming a Popeye's to our area. We did not eat at the KFC when it was open, but Popeye's is pretty good, so maybe we'll try it out when it's open.
