Popeyes Moving Headquarters To Miami, Will Oversee 3,000 Restaurants From Here

Restaurant chain Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is relocating its headquarters to Miami, according to the SFBJ.

The chains is growing fast, with 2,975 locations at the end of 2Q 2018, up from 2,768 locations at the same time in 2017.

Executives from the chain had already quietly relocating to Miami from Atlanta over the past year, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Popeyes was purchased by Burger King parent company Restaurant Brands International (RBI) in 2017 for about $1.8 billion. The company is mostly run from Miami, but is officially headquartered in Canada, where subsidiary Tim Horton’s is run from.

A five-story headquarters building for the company is under construction at Blue Lagoon, with 150,000 square feet of space. The company’s Canadian HQ will reportedly soon relocate to 65,000 square feet of space in downtown Toronto.

So Restaurant Brands International (RBI) had 200,000 square feet just for Burger King and now they are also moving the Popeyes HQ yet the total office space is now 150,000 ?

I read they are changing the office so as to need less space, but that still seems off. Anyone have any information??

Im sure with remote workers and open concept space and less individual office and maybe a transfer of facilities they can achieve this downsize and combo.

Of the 7 floors for office space, they only used 3 after all the layoffs in 2011 and 2012.

Hello.
To Whom It May Concern:
At one point in the Franchise (Popeyes) history, I could get Chicken and Rice with no problem. Now that has all changed since the Franchise has introduced “Seafood” onto the menu. Needless to say, I’m Allergic to Seafood and Apparently millions of others who are not realizing their health status. I understand an Organization must make money, how about the care of ones health? In the beginning, it was well thought of. I’d like Popeyes to change their cooking motives and separate the “Shrimp Grease from the Chicken, French fries and other fried foods on the menu”, catering to those with health issues.

Sincerely Concerned Citizen,

The employees who cook the food are not required to wear plastic gloves when they season or cook the chicken! Samenella poisoning waiting to happen! Especially at the Milwaukee Wisconsin location on 28th & Capital. Management is aware.

Also, Chicken is only tagged and labeled with fraudulent expiration dates when the managers are informed that inspectors will be visiting the restaurant @ the 28th Capital location of Popeyes in Milwaukee Wisconsin!?

It may be bigger. Maybe a couple hundred new jobs. The people who are working at the current corporate offices right now will essentially have to start looking for new homes.

Tell me when RBI moved to the United States, Miami specifically. Of all places, it’s in Canada, a shameful corporate inversion thanks to Obama.
