Popeyes is hoping to rekindle a different kind of warmth into a Fairfax site that was destroyed by a fire in 2018.
The fried chicken spot has filed plans with the county to bring a 2,265-square-foot location to Fair Lakes Shopping Center. If approved, the restaurant would occupy space that was home to United Bank.
A fire broke out at the single-story bank in May 2018. While no injuries were reported, the structure of the building was significantly damaged, according to the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department.
Since then, the property consists of just pavement with some trees.
Popeyes plans to install a one-lane drive-thru at the site and offer 42 seats at the restaurant.
Here’s more from the applicant on the facade of the restaurant:
In order to establish a distinct identity for the restaurant, the Applicant is proposing to provide a building with four-sided architecture which will be designed to complement the existing retail uses within the shopping center. The building will include brick material in red and orange, which emulates Louisiana’s heritage.
Plans were filed on Feb. 22 and have not been accepted for review by the county.
