Popeye's recently closed.

I guess the Burger King's transformation into KFC across the street did them in!

The Hollywood store was evicted last year, the store off Sunset closed last year and apparently so did the location on Olympic/San Vicente...
Folks: I was in LA over this last weekend, taking a trip on San Vicente. I passed the Pioneer Chicken in the gore point of Olympic & San Vicente. The building is still there and so is the sign. I couldn't tell if the place was open as the green light kept me from stopping and taking a good look. The sign did look somewhat faded.

We had a (probable) Pioneer Chicken here in Tempe, Az. at the corner of Broadway and Rural; the building is still there.

Folks:

Was in LA again over the weekend of October 8 & 9. The Pioneer Chicken at Olympic & San Vicente had an illuminated "Open" sign on it, lights were on, and people were inside.

Looks to me that this branch is still operating!
