The region's first Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen is slated to open by early fall, officials said.

The Popeye's, set for Elmwood Avenue near Kenmore Avenue in Buffalo, cleared its final development hurdle when the Buffalo Planning Board approved the construction of the 3,000-square-foot restaurant earlier this week.

Popeye's, best known for its spicy chicken and seafood offerings, has two locations in Rochester and three in Southern Ontario including one on Lundy's Lane in Niagara Falls.

Besides the Elmwood Avenue store, Popeye's is considering opening at least two other sites in the immediate Buffalo Niagara region, sources said.
