Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Returns November 3

The entree that sparked this summer’s Chicken Sandwich War is coming back and renewing the battle.

More than two months after Popeyes sold out of its newly released and first nationwide chicken sandwich, the chicken chain announced it will return Sunday, November 3, coinciding with National Sandwich Day.

“The Popeyes Chicken Sandwich was launched in August as a permanent addition to our menu,” said Felipe Athayde, president of Popeyes for the Americas, in a statement. “We sold through our inventory due to unprecedented demand, so the product was temporarily unavailable, but now we’re excited to say it’s back for good.”

Almost immediately after Popeyes started selling the sandwich on Aug. 12, reports started circulating that the New Orleans-style fried chicken on a bun was selling out at some locations and leading to long waits.
