Popeye’s restaurant locations closer to completion

UPDATED: Sun., Sept. 10, 2017, 10:27 a.m.

Two Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen locations are closer to opening in the Spokane region, one in Post Falls and the other on North Division St.

The Post Falls location is complete and expected to open by the end of September.

Construction at the Spokane location, 6720 N. Division St., will begin at the end of September, according to Zack Bull, the project’s manager with Baker Construction, the contractor.

He said it could take up to four months to build that building, which will be on the northeast corner of Division and Lyons Avenue.

Second Sonic opens

Another Sonic Drive-In opened in the area, at 10241 N. Newport Highway.

The drive-in is open from 6 a.m. to midnight, with daily half-price drinks from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and two-for-one burgers every Tuesday night.

The fast food chain, which began in the 1950s and has about 3,500 locations nationwide, is based in Oklahoma City.

Downtown cider house opens

One Tree Hard Cider opened its downtown location Friday, boasting more alcoholic ciders on tap than any other location in Spokane. The cider house has 20 rotating taps of ciders and perrys, which are made from fermented pears instead of apples.

The locally owned cider brewer began in 2014 and uses only Washington state apples. The cider house specializes in uncommon flavors, including lemon basil, caramel cinnamon and ginger apricot.

Hours of the new location were not immediately available.
