Just a mere 110 miles from Bismarck to a brand-new restaurant opened in March

The excitement was building for what seemed like forever -  Have you ever eaten at a Popeyes? Check it out, there are 3,138 of these around the United States, and two are in North Dakota - Minot finally opened one.

Fargo, Minot Air Force Base ( not open to the public ) and...

So what do you think? Are you with me on a road trip as soon as possible?

Go ahead and set your GPS address at 325 28th Ave SW. The site of Minot's Popeyes Louisiana.  I think this is awesome - and with restaurants and fast food places opening fairly close to us here in Bismarck and Mandan, it keeps us motivated to stay hopeful for new opportunities. I remember how excited people were when they were building Panda Express over by Costgo almost two years ago. As I always say, forward progress is always important. My final question - "When will Bismarck get one?"
