Last summer, we announced that The Purple Onion is opening a new location in Lakeview. Now, four former Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits will be transformed into new The Purple Onion restaurants. Let’s take a look at the new locations:

  • 2581 Pelham Parkway in Pelham
  • 2207 Moody Parkway in Moody
  • 1545 Montclair Road in Irondale
  • 3318 Rainbow Drive in Rainbow City

Same delicious food except now you don’t even have to leave your car.

Name a better combo. I’ll wait. Photo via The Purple Onion.

According to Lyndsy Yim, an associate broker at Retail Specialists, the new Pelham location will be a new concept. We can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeves.

In response to our new normal, the upcoming locations will have a drive-through unlike the current stores around town. Grabbing a gyro without having to go inside? Yes, please!
