Popeyes chicken sandwich returning soon

Updated October 24, 2019 - 5:40 pm

Get ready, Las Vegas.

All signs point to Popeyes chicken sandwiches coming back soon.

Sun Holdings Inc., operator of about 150 Popeyes locations in Florida, Michigan, Oklahoma and Texas, will bring the sandwich back in early November, according to Bloomberg. Restaurants will hire an additional 400 employees to deal with the anticipated rush.

Popeyes corporate parent company, Restaurant Brands International Inc., did not confirm the date of the sandwich’s relaunch, Bloomberg reported.

The sandwich debuted in August, becoming a viral sensation in the process, but restaurants struggled to keep up with demand. On Aug. 27, Popeyes announced it had sold out of the sandwiches.
