It’s been nearly two months since Popeyes ran out of the fried chicken sandwich that launched a hundred thousand tweets, lines down the block and fans were nor happy about it.
Next month, Popeyes will relaunch the chicken sandwich in 150 locations run by a one franchisee owned locations in Texas, Oklahoma City, and central and coastal Florida. (That represents about 4 percent of all Popeyes locations.) To deal with the sheer mania this news will cause, Popeyes will hire 400 new employees and may assign as many as two people per restaurant to chicken sandwich duties.
So, enjoy your chicken sandwich windfall, people who live in those places. The rest of us will just have to wait it out.
