Before its opening, here are some things you may want to know:

Its award-winning fried chicken! At POPEYES®, flavor is everything!  POPEYES® takes pride in its juicy (but not greasy) and extra crispy fried chicken with distinct flavors from the South of the USA. Made fresh daily, POPEYES® fried chicken is generously marinated in Cajun-inspired spices and seasonings, then hand battered, breaded and cooked slow and served fast.

Enjoy an exciting menu of POPEYES® signature dishes. Aside from its world-famous fried chicken, the fried chicken chain will also offer some of its other popular dishes which include biscuits, Cajun fries, Chicken Tenders, and some exclusive items to be introduced in the Philippines.

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.
