Happy Birthday, Popeyes! The popular chicken chain just turned 50. The much-loved restaurant was founded in 1972 by Al Copeland in New Orleans. Since its doors opened on June 12, the restaurant has offered customers the same delicious food they’d find walking into any kitchen in the south — fried chicken and southern sides.
Popeyes is celebrating its Golden Anniversary by offering customers a special that pays homage to the signature chicken recipe that kicked it all off 50 years ago.
For a limited time, get five (5) pieces of golden, hand-battered and hand-breaded chicken for just $6.99 at participating locations.
The offer is only available at popeyes.com or in the app. The offer is not valid for delivery.
Plus, for a limited time, one of the chain’s most popular sides is back on the menu — Cajun Rice. (The side was discontinued in 2021.) With its flavorful Cajun and creole seasonings mixed together from a range of bold ingredients, including bell pepper, onion, garlic, celery and cayenne, the side dish is a unique offering in the fast-food industry.
