Whenever we post "What restaurant would you like to see come to Sioux Falls" on our Facebook page, the answers usually include Popeyes Louisiana  Kitchen. Your wish has come true!

According to the Sioux Falls Business Journal, Popeye's is close to a location in Sioux Falls. According to the article, a site is under contract in Sioux Falls with a possible second location to come soon after. Construction could begin early next year.

Jodi Schwan of the Sioux Falls Business Journal has been in Las Vegas this week for RECON, the world's largest retail convention and is getting the scoop on new businesses that have plans to come to Sioux Falls.

Another restaurant with its eye on Sioux Falls is Moe's Southwest Grill. There are plans to open two locations in Sioux Falls, although a lease hasn't been signed yet.

The Sonic restaurant on East 10th Street seemed to open and close rather quickly. It sat empty for a few months and eventually demolished. A Caribou Coffee is planned for the site, but according to the Sioux Falls Business Journal has to be remodeled to include Einstein Bros. Bagles.

Here's some more good food news. According to the SFBJ, Jersey Mike's Subs wants to come to Sioux Falls. They're in search of a franchisee.

I looked at their menu and their sandwiches look very appealing, but will SOMEONE please bring a sub shop/deli to Sioux Falls that serves french fries with your sandwich. I love a cold sandwich with fries and there is not one sub shop/deli that does this in Sioux Falls. If there is and I have overlooked it, will someone please e-mail me the name of it! I have been known to get a ham and cheese sub at Jimmy John's and drive to McDonald's to get some fries. I love the combination!

Schwan also spoke with a national retail analyst who said Sioux Falls would eventually get a Whole Foods, another name that floods our Facebook comments when asked what new stores you'd like to see in the city.

This RECON convention sounds like my kind of party. I think Results Radio should send me next year to cover the event - so long as it's in Vegas again.
