Hoffman Estates approves new Popeyes with drive-through

Hoffman Estates trustees Monday approved a new Popeyes restaurant with a drive-through just east of Hoffman Plaza on Golf Road, but the developer has a couple of tasks to complete before construction can begin.

Those include closing on the $800,000 purchase of the 0.7-acre site at 65 E. Golf Road from the village and getting permission for its access to the roadway from the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Because of these lingering factors, the developer has not yet provided the village an estimated opening for the new restaurant, Hoffman Estates Economic Development Director Kevin Kramer said.

The Popeyes will not have an entrance driveway on Golf Road, but a right-turn-only exit. The main access to the business will be along the Hoffman Plaza driveway immediately to the west.
