If you missed out the first round, get ready — the infamous Popeyes chicken sandwich is headed back to restaurants.
Popeyes has been sending out targeted Instagram ads that say, “The sandwich is coming soon,” according to Foodbeast.
Thrillist also did some digging of its own this week and tried to nail down an exact timeframe for when the highly-anticipated sandwich would come back. The outlet called four different Popeyes locations in four cities to see if the employees had any information to share. A Brooklyn location said, “Hopefully this week,” while a Southern California store said, “Probably Wednesday” (today). A Houston shop said, “Sometime next month,” and a Chicago location said, “About two more weeks.”
While Thrillist wasn’t able to pin down a definite date, it was able to identify a timeframe: from as early as Oct. 23 to sometime in November. In the meantime, the fast-food chain is pushing you to download their app, where you can be the first to know about the launch, per Foodbeast.
“We have been working diligently to bring the sandwich back to our restaurants soon as we know our guests are anxiously anticipating its return,” a Popeyes spokesperson told Thrillist. “As soon as we’re ready to announce a date, we will let you know!”
Word on the street is that it’s set to return Nov. 1st, but you didn’t hear that from us.
