Work is underway on a new Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen where the Uno Pizzeria & Grill stood near the intersection of Grand Avenue and Hunt Club Road in Gurnee.

Assistant Village Administrator Jack Linehan said there are no estimates for when the Popeyes will open.

 

In June, the village board approved a plan to level the Uno at the strip mall anchored by Target and Home Depot and build two businesses in its place, the Popeyes and a US Bank,

The Uno at 6593 Grand Ave. was demolished over the summer, and foundations for both the Popeyes and the US Bank have been poured.

The Popeyes will be on the western end of the old Unos site. On Tuesday, crews were at work putting up the wood frame for the building.

According to village documents, there will be five signs for the Popeyes on the site.

The US Bank will be on the eastern end of the old Uno site.
