The wait is finally over. Nearly two months after running out of the beloved, viral sensation that was the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich, the restaurant chain has brought it back for its loyal customers. Beginning Sunday, November 3, the Popeyes sandwich is back as a permanent menu item.
Yes, in typical Popeyes fashion they trolled rival Chick-fil-A by relaunching the sandwich on a Sunday.
Even better: Sunday is National Sandwich Day.
So who is ready to go pick up a sandwich to celebrate the big day?
When the sandwich first became a viral sensation, it took just two weeks for Popeyes to run out of what was supposed to be a seven-week inventory.
“We didn’t expect to break the internet, and as a result we had the entire nation really excited about the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich,” CEO of Restaurant Brands International José Cil said at the time the product initially ran out. “As a result, we ran out much sooner than anticipated.”
This is more evidence than ever that when the people speak, the companies listen.
