LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Popeye’s is bringing back its popular chicken sandwich that sold out within two weeks. When the company ran out of the fried chicken sandwich nearly two months ago, there were thousands of tweets from people upset the sandwich was no longer available.

Well, the company is bringing the sandwich back but only in some locations. Those restaurants are in Texas, Oklahoma City and central and coastal Florida, according to Bloomberg. About 150 restaurants in those locations are owned by a franchisee called Sun Holdings Inc. The sandwich will be available in early November.

Popeye’s does eventually plan to bring the sandwich back to all of its restaurants but there is no date for that yet.
