Popeyes first opened in Arabi, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans, on June 12, 1972, under the name ‘Chicken on the Run‘, by messiah Al Copeland. They only sold mild chicken, and after the people weren’t buying it, Al & Co got all spicy, renamed the coop after The French Connection‘s Detective Jimmy ‘Popeye’ Doyle (and later acquired the rights to use Popeye the Sailor for marketing, which they’ve since abandoned) and the rest is fried skin geniusnesssssssnesssssss / greatnesssssssnesssssss
If you’ve never eaten Popeyes, you might as well not have a mouth
If you’re a vegetarian, LOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLOLLLLOLLLLOLLLLOLLLOLLL, then just eat the biscuits
If you think KFC is better than Popeyes, you don’t deserve to live
Eat Popeyes and make your life better
HAPPY 40th POPEYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thighmaster flashback – the year was 1994, and I had just turned 17. my folks asked what I wanted to do for a birthday dinner and/or party. I said, how bout an all-you-can-eat Popeyes fest for me and my high school besties???? Guess what, it happened and it was probably the best birthday party I’ve ever had, and I’m not even joking
THANK YOU AL & POPEYES!!!!
