It’s official that Popeye’s famous chicken sandwich will be back in early November, although no specific date has been confirmed.
There are several rumors started by Popeye’s employees that the release date is November 4th.
To better prepare itself this time around, Popeyes will reportedly hire upwards of 400 employees company-wide to deal with the new batch of chicken fillets arriving. “Our franchisees have worked to increase staffing,” Restaurant Brands — the parent company of Popeyes — said in a statement to Bloomberg. “We have been working diligently to bring the sandwich back to our restaurants soon, as we know our guests are anxiously anticipating its return.”
