A Popeyes fast food chicken restaurant on Teaneck Road was one of five New York City-area locations to shut down, a company spokeswoman confirmed Monday.
Alicia Thompson, vice president for communications at Popeyes, said the stores were expected to "re-open in the near future," but there was no estimate on when. The five metro-area locations were all owned by the same franchise, she said.
"The restaurants are independently owned and operated and it is our policy to not comment specifically on the business concerns of our individual franchise operators," Thompson wrote in an e-mail.
The property owner could not be immediately reached for comment.
