Alexandria Businessman Invited to U.S. Embassy Re-Opening

An Alexandria businessman was the only Louisianan invited to the historic re-opening of the U.S. Embassy in Cuba earlier this month.

Mike Shelton owns Popeye’s franchises and is interested in doing business there, but he says don’t expect fried chicken to be sold there anytime soon.

Shelton says the historic renewal of diplomatic relations with Cuba is a first step in a long process to permit business relations between the United States and Cuba.
