Popeyes brings back the Chicken Sandwich

In what seems to be a jab at competitor Chick-fil-A, the Chicken Sandwich will return to Popeyes Sunday.

October 28, 2019

(KNOU) — Popeyes has rekindled this summer's chicken sandwiches war, announcing Monday that the return of theirs is less than a week away.

The chicken chain was engaged in a battle with competitor Chick-fil-A, selling out their entire three-month supply in just weeks, according to Business Insider.

"Y'all…the sandwich is back Sunday, November 3rd. Then every day," reads the tweet from Popeyes.

While that date coincides with this year's National Sandwich Day, it also gives the company the upper hand since all Chick-fil-A locations are closed on Sundays. 

With the return of the sandwich comes the return of crowds, which is why the restaurant chain is hiring hundreds of additional workers to help keep up with the demand for the sandwich, Business Insider reports

In addition to the return of the sandwich, the company has launched an app that can alert customers when the chicken sandwich is available and when it is sold out.
