    Popeyes® Chicken & Biscuits, a division of AFC Enterprises, Inc. (Nasdaq: AFCE), today announced the opening of its first restaurant in Chattanooga on April 24, 2001.

The restaurant will be open Sunday - Thursday, 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. In addition to its great Cajun-style food, the new Broad Street restaurant features Popeyes' new Heritage design.
