Popeyes PH Beginning
Fifty years ago in New Orleans, Louisiana, a taste sensation was born. What began with one small restaurant and one big idea turned into a craze that swept the nation and the world.
It all started when Alvin C. Copeland Sr. opened “Chicken Run” in the New Orleans suburb of Arabi, serving traditional Southern-Fried Chicken. After several months of lackluster performance, he reopens the restaurant as “Popeyes” named after the famous character “Popeye Doyle” in The French Connection movie.
Fast forward to 2019, America’s favorite chicken chain, Popeyes, officially opens its first restaurant at ArcoVia City, in Pasig, Philippines. With this launch, diners can now get a taste of the much talked-about signature fried chicken that’s juicy, not greasy, made fresh daily and is packed with Cajun-inspired flavors from Louisiana, USA. Also on the original menu are Popeye’s classics such as honey biscuits, Cajun fries, Cajun rice, and chicken tenders.
