The first POPEYES® restaurant opened in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA in 1972. New Orleans, Louisiana is a melting pot of music, festive traditions and flavors. The POPEYES® chicken recipe is based on 300-year old culinary traditions of Louisiana and a fusion of ingredients and influences from 7 different nations. Founder Alvin Copeland Sr. infused his chicken with bold flavors from his native Louisiana which created a unique flavor that helped launch a global chicken empire.
Today, POPEYES® is one of the biggest fried chicken chains in the world with over 3,000 restaurants in over 25 countries. And it continues to grow bigger with new restaurants opening here in the Philippines.
