It caused a buzz the first time around in Richmond and created line-ups around the corner when it opened last year.

The Richmond News has learned that a second Popeye’s will be opening in the city, following on from the diner that opened up on Bridgeport Road last December.

It’s understood that the popular Louisiana fried chicken chain’s second Richmond location will be in Ironwood Plaza, off Steveston Highway.

A spokesperson for Popeye's Canada told the News that it hopes to open the new location "later this year."

The News has also reached out to the shopping centre’s management company for more details of exactly where the diner will open.
