Waldman & Associates leases 3,320 s/f to Popeyes Chicken; Williamson of Williamson Partners represents tenant

Woonsocket, RI The former Wendy’s at 2170 Diamond Hill Rd., is now a Popeyes Chicken. Bringing the deal together were Dan Waldman of Waldman & Associates who represented the landlord, and Chris Williamson of Williamson Partners who represented Popeye’s. The 3,320 s/f site is across from Walnut Commons Mall.

Waldman says he is grateful for the support of Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt. “Woonsocket is going through an economic transition and the mayor told me she would personally streamline any permitting issue. We had several other potential tenants, but felt Popeyes has the best long-term potential. We knew the demographics mirror the Popeyes concept. The traffic during the soft grand opening when cars were lined up confirmed that we made the correct decision. Working with Chris and the mayor was a delight,” he said.

Popeyes, which recently held a full grand opening, has invested $500,000 into the site and has hired many workers from the local population. The new location is one of 2,600 worldwide.

Mark Blotner of Kinross Real Estate of Boston and Lloyd Rosenthal of Green Line Realty are the owners.
