Decision on new Popeyes in Fairfax deferred to November

The company has filed plans with the county for a new 42-seat restaurant (Photo via handout/Fairfax County Government).

County planners need more time to work through an application for a new Popeyes in Fair Lakes Shopping Center (13060 Fair Lakes Shopping Center).

At a meeting on Oct. 19, the Fairfax County Planning Commission voted unanimously to defer a decision on the application to Nov. 16.

Popeyes is seeking the county’s permission to build a 2,265-square-foot restaurant to the shopping center in space that was previously home to United Bank.

The motion was made with little to no discussion.

At-large member Timothy Sergeant said the decision would “allow more time for the applicant to improve their application.”

Since a fire broke out in the single-story bank in 2018, the site has remained undeveloped with pavement and some trees. The company plans to install a one-lane drive-thru at the 42-seat restaurant.
