Fri, Dec 20th 2013 03:40 pm




BUFFALO, New York - Tuesday, December 17,  2013 - Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen restaurateur and franchisee owner opens his newest and largest eatery at 2090B Elmwood Ave. North Buffalo, NY.   Out of the 70+ locations he owns, this is the first of its kind, showcasing its newest design and increased size. Western New Yorkers can now enjoy all the flavors of the famous southern style Louisiana chicken beginning today.   

Concept Construction Corporation is proud to be the General Contractor and began construction in October, 2013.   In just 8 short weeks the ground up new building construction was complete and is now open for business.  With a week dedicated to the hiring & training process, the first 30 out of a projected 40+ new employees will begin serving up the eye-popping chicken delights this afternoon.  Concept Construction Company President Matt Shevlin  explains: "The entire experience was rewarding.  With a tight construction schedule, both the franchise owner,  his representatives and our entire construction crew needed to be in sync from the very beginning, and we were.  Everyone is happy."  

Consistent with the plan to develop  a number of these restaurants regionally, Concept Construction has teamed up with the local Popeye's franchisee owner and will work together to bring more of these restaurants into Western New York.  The work continues in earnest  to maintain an aggressive construction schedule with both parties expecting much success.  

" We're in a renaissance,  a new Buffalo and the success of small business owners and franchise operations like these are so key to our region's economic success.  We're are happy to be a part of it,"
adds Shevlin.

Mayor Byron Brown who hosted the Ground Breaking ceremony in September, was on hand again this afternoon to celebrate the restaurant's Grand Opening.

Concept Construction Corp. is a self-performing, 4thgeneration, family owned business and for 40 years has specialized in commercial general construction, construction management and design-build services
