The plot thickens.
Last week I reported that Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen wouldn't be coming to Rapid City after all. Looking for an update on Popeyes' plans to open a southern-style fast food restaurant here, I'd contacted the company's communications department and received an e-mail stating, "Unfortunatey, Popeyes will not be coming to Rapid City or Rushmore Crossing."
Today, though, I came to work to find an orange Popeyes coffee mug on my desk filled with pens, stickers and beads, along with an unsigned, typed note that read cryptically, "Don't believe everything you hear! Rushmore Crossing is a no-go for Popeyes. Rapid City, however, is a definite YES! Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen coming soon ..."
Oooh, I love a good mystery.
