Vercetti Enterprises Celebrates Completion of Popeyes Restaurant in Homestead, FL
Vercetti Enterprises celebrates the completion of the latest ground-up Popeyes restaurant in South Florida in nearly a decade.
“The French Quarter inspired design makes it a distinct addition to the City of Homestead.” – Danny Vercetti, President of Vercetti Enterprises.
“We are excited to have left our mark with this highly anticipated project in the historic community and being able to have taken part in the revitalization of Krome Avenue. I can honestly say that the future is bright for Homestead.”
Developed by VRE Homestead, a subsidiary of a prominent nationwide restaurant developer, the single-story building is located off of the historic Krome Avenue in Homestead. As a part of the fried chicken franchises revamped branding,the restaurant features several USB outlets, Wi-Fi connectivity, and panoramic views with plenty of glass. The kitchen features six fryers, two hoods, several holding bins, and a freezer/cooler combo. The building itself is nearly 25’ in height and is intended to appear as a two-story building complete with faux balconies, windows, and shutters. A few of the main exterior features includes a covered trellis with outdoor seating and a decorative knee wall that obscures drive-thru traffic from Krome Avenue.
Homestead has recently embarked on a substantial economic revitalization program in the historic downtown area. The new LEED Certified, 84,000 square foot facility features a 225-seat council chamber and has become a landmark building for the city. In addition, a 55,000 square foot police headquarters was also recently completed and has become a major milestone in the area’s redevelopment. Homestead Station, the Homestead Cybrary, and the Losner Park Expansion will bring restaurants, entertainment, and cutting-edge technology to a seemingly forgotten South Florida city. “This is a perfect example of revitalization and jobs creation alongside our efforts of historic preservation” says Yvone Knowles, Director for Homestead Main Street.
