Does anyone know why Burger King closed in one location in Lacey, less than a mile down the road, and a new one is being built? 

Lacey closed Burger King less than a mile down the road and Popeyes took over. Now, from what I'm hearing and seeing on Facebook, it's a new Burger King being built in the Home Depot Plaza next to the new Chipotle being built.

I was hoping for something else, maybe a nice sit-down restaurant. Several listeners wrote me and really wanted a Cracker Barrel in Lacey.

I know that the "old" Burger King that Popeyes took over was really run down and needed to be updated. But the owners of Popeyes did an awesome job. Couldn't they have just done that to the "old" Burger King?

Maybe you know the reason why? Listen, I like Burger King, although the "King" scares me...the chicken sandwiches are so good. The whole area being built throws me off because right next to the "new" Chipotle being built is a Taco Bell. And, now a Burger King. It does look like a drive-thru window.

I originally thought it was going to be a Starbucks. But Starbucks is being built on Lacey Road. It would have been perfect for a Starbucks.

So, all the rumors were absolutely true, it is a Burger King and it's ready to open soon. And, a sign "Now Hiring." Burger King in Lacey, in the Home Depot Plaza, has a brand new building.
