The exterior of Triplet's Blue Store, Cracklins & Chicken, located at 12222 Plank Road. The owner of Triplet's bought a former Circle K at 5605 Jones Creek and plans to open a restaurant there, its fourth in Baton Rouge. 

Triplet's Blue Store has purchased a former Circle K building on Jones Creek Road with plans to build one of its popular chicken wing restaurants at the site.

Triplet's, which lists Phung Phan of Baton Rouge as its agent, bought the property at 5605 Jones Creek from Circle K in a deal, property transfer records show. Although in one part of the sales document it said Triplets paid $100 and “other good and valuable consideration” for the land, both parties acknowledged the full and complete sale price was $340,000.

Ellis McKnight and Mark Hebert, of Kurz & Hebert Commercial Real Estate, represented the buyer and the seller. The property, at the corner of Jones Creek and Ferrell Avenue, consists of a 2,700-square-foot building on a 0.35 acre lot.

Triplet's got its start at 605 Mills Ave. in north Baton Rouge and has opened up locations on Plank Road and on Highland Road near LSU’s North Gates. It is known for its fried wings and a limited menu of fried rice, potato logs and boudin.
