If the name of this fried chicken restaurant chain means something to you, that’s fine. In 2019, Americans even lined up at the car dealership for hours to try the latest Popeyes burger recipe! Founded in 1972 in New Orleans, this fast food franchise attempted to open its first location in France in 2018, opening three restaurants in Toulouse and Montpellier, but unfortunately without success.

As such, all fried chicken lovers are eagerly awaiting Napaqaro’s takeover of Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen’s “master franchise” to compete with the specialty’s leader, KFC. Thus, thanks to this “family and popular” brand, we can enjoy many gourmet recipes with chicken “always fresh and 100% French, in fillet, thighs or wings”. Everything will be cooked and “breaded by hand in French flour and then fried by chefs, not industrially.” As for the price, the menu will be “probably between 6 and 9 euros”.

This time is definitely correct. This specialty, in particular represented by KFC, currently the market leader, is widely discussed, making fried chicken sandwiches modern. And with the Popeye recipe, we also run the risk of succumbing to it very quickly. Already established in several Western European countries (Switzerland, UK and Spain), Popeyes and its famous “chicken sandwich” will captivate your taste buds. Based on delicious “chicken marinated for 12 hours then cooked with homemade spice mix” and other exquisite and authentic recipes, the success of the franchise should be in this.

We are very proud to partner with Restaurant Brands International to launch Popeyes in France. This new partnership confirms Napaqaro’s commitment to building the future of food service by offering our customers and families a unique experience.Jocelyn Olive said.
