Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is breaking ground for a new restaurant, located at 3699 N. Thanksgiving Way in Lehi.

The restaurant, to open in March, is just across from the new Adobe campus, which dominates the east side of Interstate 15 at the Thanksgiving Point exit.

The New Orleans-based Popeyes has 2,035 restaurants in the U.S. and 25 foreign countries, including a location at Hill Air Force Base south of Ogden that is open only to base personnel and a store at the Salt Lake City International Airport.

Last year, the Cajun fried chicken restaurant chain opened 140 restaurants.
