Chicken hype reaches England: First “Popeyes” store has opened in the heart of London

The popular quick-service chain is already represented in more than 40 states in the USA and 20 countries worldwide, and everyone knows its name. Finally, England is getting to enjoy the long-awaited culinary delights too. Since November 20, 2021, the motto in London has been: “Believe the Hype”!

After expanding to Switzerland, China, Spain, and many other countries, the very first Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurant in England recently celebrated its grand opening. In the heart of London, in the well-known shopping centre “Westfield Stratford”, the quick-service chain will in future pamper the palates of the British with high-quality culinary delights. On the day of the opening of the new Popeyes restaurant, hundreds of people were already standing in a seemingly never-ending queue to try one of the popular chicken burgers. Customers who wanted to get their hands on one had to wait up to an hour.

Pretty hot stuff! Things only get more heated with the specially developed “Hottie” sauce – a sauce with pop culture – by Megan Thee Stallion, the brand ambassador of Popeyes. Megan makes a bold statement with her latest creation, which is a perfect complement to Popeyes Chicken.
