Popeyes Corporate Headquarters

Atlanta, GA

The moment you walk into Popeyes dramatic new corporate headquarters space you know that you are in a special place.

The space has an energy to it that is warm and inviting, original and fun, and forward looking. It is a perfect representation of Popeyes brand, and it embodies Popeyes corporate values, culture and key principles. The space also integrates a 3,000 sf test kitchen, which is a wonderful showcase for visitors and guests. 

The ultimate design solution captures the essential characteristics of the Popeyes brand: authenticity, originality, fun, food-orientation. A use of natural and authentic materials with clean geometries and simple lines was a goal of the design team. Basic design elements were used as inspiration for the project: the circle – represented the company logo and the idea of community; the portal – reinforced the connection to New Orleans doorways and symbolized the idea of welcome; musical notes – captured the connection to jazz, to the evolving nature of the business and were used to add playful, colorful elements to the space.

Services provided by the design team led by John Schneider included full design services from schematic design to construction documents and construction administration services.  Specialty design services included food service consulting for the layout of the test kitchen, MEP/FP, environmental graphic design, art consulting services and FF&E design, selection and procurement. Our services also included the design of custom millwork and light fixtures.
