Louisiana flavour comes to Cayman

| 23/04/2010

(CNS): A local business man is bringing a taste of New Orleans to the Cayman Islands having opened the first Popeyes® in Cayman. The new restaurant familiar to regular visitors to the southern states has opened on Eastern Ave this week and is one of two restaurants the franchise organization plans to build on the island over the next couple years. The holder of this first franchise, Gary Rutty will run the restaurant with his wife Angel said he was looking forward to brining Cayman some Louisiana flavour.

“For more than 35 years, Popeyes has thrilled patrons around the globe with New Orleans-style cuisine hard to find outside of Cajun-country,” said Rutty. “As a sixth generation islander, I have come to love Popeyes through my travels and knew Caymanians would love the bold spicy flavors too.”
Popeyes’ is a fast service restaurant with a variety of menu items with a kick such as spicy and mild chicken, popcorn shrimp, and signature sides including Cajun rice, Mashed Potatoes with Cajun Gravy, Cajun Fries, and world-famous Red Beans & Rice. 
Rutty said the restaurant design is consistent with that found in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, the brand’s birthplace, with an island feel.  The architectural design features bold colours, awnings and gooseneck lighting.  Dine-in customers will also be treated to the vibrant sounds of Popeyes in-restaurant entertainment featuring jazz, blues and zydeco.
 “We have been working hard to bring Grand Cayman a taste of Louisiana heritage and can’t wait to share the unique Louisiana cuisine and New Orleans atmosphere that really differentiate Popeyes from any other quick service brand,” added Rutty.
