Popeyes will bring back its chicken sandwich on Sunday, Nov. 3

Local News

LAS VEGAS (CNN) — It’s official, Popeyes fried chicken sandwich is returning nationwide Sunday, Nov. 3rd — permanently.

The fast food chain made the announcement Monday.

Popeyes had to stop selling the item just two weeks after it launched in August.

The company says the battered and breaded white meat filet, topped with pickles and mayo or spicy Cajun spread is here to stay!

The “extraordinary demand” the first time around was driven by a viral social spat between competitors.

Specifically Chick-fil-a, which sells a similar sandwich.

Popeyes is already taking a dig at them by relaunching the sandwich on Sunday, when Chick-fil-a is closed.
