Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen

Welcome to Popeyes®! Founded in New Orleans in 1972. It all started with one small restaurant with a big idea that turned into a craze that swept America. Now we’re opening in the UK to serve a new nation of chicken lovers. We’re shaking up the UK chicken game, Louisiana style! Sure, we took our time getting here, but some things are worth the wait. Here in the UK, we use 100% Fresh British Chicken marinated for 12 hours in our signature blend of Louisiana herbs & spices. Then breaded and battered by hand to create that famous Popeyes® shatter crunch texture. So Cambridge, y’all ready for this?
