Popeyes has seen growth in the last four years that is unparalleled by other fast food restaurants.
Since its chicken sandwich became viral in 2019, the business has grown its awareness, establishing 200 additional outlets internationally in 2021 alone.
Riding this wave of consumer familiarity, Popeyes launched its first branches in the UK last year. Customers are delighted to get a taste of edible Americana.
Popeyes is so popular in the U.K. that the business aims to add 20 more outlets by 2023. It grew fast! Popeyes UK's CEO says the buzz is growing.
People queue through the night at all our openings to be first in line.
Cambridge, Croydon, and Reading will have Popeyes sites in early 2023, followed by Rotherham, Cardiff, and Glasgow.
In addition to Maida Vale, Whitechapel, Bermondsey, and Battersea, the firm will operate ghost kitchens in Brent Cross and Dulwich.
The chain will open its first U.K. drive-thru next year. It's planned for Parkgate Shopping Park in Rotherham.
CEO said, "Consumer demand for a drive-thru has been high since we came in the UK, so it's a milestone for us."
"We've structured our site acquisition strategy based on client desire, and it's amazing to watch it unfold."
