Racine is getting a second Popeye’s Chicken, and the new location is already accepting applications.

Candidates interested in joining the crew at the new restaurant – 5550 Durand Avenue, next to Regency Mall – can visit the Workforce Development Center, 1717 Taylor Avenue, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

It is unknown how many employees are needed, exactly where the new Popeye’s will be built or when it will open. A Google map search indicates the former White Castle Hamburger outlet at the 5550 Durand Ave. address.

The current Popeye’s, 920 Washington Avenue, will remain open, a store employee said when we called Monday night.

Messages have been left with Popeye’s, and we will update this story when we hear back from them.
