A Popeyes chicken restaurant in Detroit, Michigan, was forced to close this week after a video posted online by a DoorDash driver showed cockroaches crawling around the store.
“They have cockroaches,” the driver said in one of the videos alongside recording of cockroaches creeps around the counter and around the food order. “Running over all the straws.”
“I told the workers they were all just there, they were cleaning out,” the woman says. “They just laugh.”
A Popeyes spokesperson confirmed to Fox News Digital that the store, located on Detroit’s east side, was temporarily closed in response to the video.

“This is completely unacceptable!” said the spokesman. “This restaurant was operated by an independent franchisee and has been closed until it can provide our guests with the Popeye’s standards and service they deserve.”
The driver told WXYZ-TV she was “shocked” and “disgusted” by the incident.

“I just couldn’t believe they were even open and working in those conditions,” the driver said.
An insect expert told WJBK-TV that German cockroaches are a “tough pest” that usually stays in an area to eat rotten food, but likely first entered the store as hitchhikers.

“Someone has an infested home, they come to work and bring some roaches with them, in a backpack, purse or coat, whatever,” Mark VanderWerp of Rose Pest Solutions told the outlet. “Or it comes into transport and goods.”
