Is it just the area where Popeyes was located that caused them to close. Their location back in a parking area like popeyes was made it a little difficult for customers to get to. There is another business which has closed on Douglas road which orginally was a "Southern Bell" restaurant which also closed and recently reopened and named "Chives," I was just there on Tuesday and there is a sign in the door saying that the locks had been changed and the security alarm set.The business must have been shut down in a hurry for some reason as the coffee cups are still on the tables all set up for customers. Is this closing of businesses in this area a sign of bad economic conditions or was it just bad management that closed these businesses down.

Remax real Estate office on the byass..... closed Maybe its a sign of Obama style properity hitting busineses and home owners. Why do you think some businesses are still open in this area and others are closing everyday.

Seems like a Stretch in judgement. Probably had a ARM loan which would not be a great way to start a business and really Obama put Real Estate out of Business. It wasn't all these lenders who lent money to people who shouldn't have had a loan in first place. By the way Popeyes was open way before Obama was in office. Of course he was a Senator then......Hmmmm?

It's obvious that the village closed the restaurant down, not because of its popularity. Was it the health department? And what about Chive as well?

oberweis is still in business because they sell good poducts that people like. While Oswego citizens like good chicken popeye's chicken wasn't very good and sometimes was so highly seasoned it couldn't be eaten, as a results they no longer have a business in the Oswego area and the people who were employed there no longer have jobs.
hmmmm

It closed because it sells food that makes people fat, yet Oberweis is good for you? Wow...... those comments show you that these boards are full of people who have no idea what they are talking about. Oberweis is fattening as hell. It may be quality food but that doesn't mean its and better for you. The sign says the business license has been revoked. Not because of bad food, or location or lack of business. That place actually had a very good flow of people. As for the employees getting over losing their jobs, yeah maybe they should get over it by going to get another job.......... oh wait Illinois has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. Guess that won't work either.
