Protesters Want East-Side Detroit Popeyes to Shut Because of Past Health Violations  –  Deadline Detroit

It’s hard enough to build up goodwill in the neighborhood after being shut by the Detroit Health Department  for a couple weeks because of unsanitary conditions.

That’s what Popeyes restaurant at 14180 Gratiot in Detroit has likely had to deal with since reopening Aug. 7 after being shut for two weeks. The health department said it had corrected the problems.

Now comes this new challenge to getting business back on track: A small group of people, lead by community activist Malik Shabazz, protested on Sunday outside the Popeyes, demanding it shut permanentlky, reports Nia Harden of WXYZ. 

Protesters say managers knew the health violations were going on before a former employee released a video showing gross conditions.
