Founded in 1972, Popeyes® owes its beginnings to entrepreneur and culinary innovator, Al Copeland. With one small restaurant and a big idea, Copeland introduced the New Orleans–style fried chicken that has now made the brand famous throughout the world. Popeyes® culinary heritage is built upon the rich Cajun and creole flavor profiles that are unmistakably Louisiana. We continuously draw upon and celebrate this heritage to inspire new, authentic menu creations the world craves. This unique and flavorful food has allowed Popeyes® to become one of the world’s largest chicken quick service restaurants, with over 2,700 restaurants in the U.S. and around the world.
