Former Denny’s Ogletown site slated to become a Popeyes location

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The site of a former Denny’s restaurant on Route 273 in Ogletown is slated to become a Popeye’s restaurant under plans submitted to the New Castle County Department of Land Use.

The late-night and breakfast hangout closed after a long run at the site off Interstate 95.

Denny’s saw competition intensify when a nearby former Pizza Hut became Smiley’s Diner and a Metro Diner opened a short distance away in a former Wawa market.

The Denny’s site is located in McIntosh Plaza on the south side of Christiana Road.

Plans call for demolishing the Denny’s and constructing a new 2,145 square foot Popeyes fast food restaurant with a drive-through.

Popeyes, known for its spicy chicken and New Orleans roots, has enjoyed a new wave of popularity, thanks to a new chicken sandwich.

Word of mouth and social media buzz led to the sandwich quickly selling out and Popeyes taking it off the menu for a time. The sandwich returned after Popeyes built a supply chain that could meet demand.
