Customers can enjoy two pieces of Popeyes' famed fried chicken for just 59 cents.
To commemorate its 50th anniversary, the fast food restaurant offered a special promotion.
Alvin C. Copeland Sr., the company's founder, founded Chicken on the Run in New Orleans in
1972, offering conventional Southern-fried chicken. According to the corporate website, the
business suffered, so he rebuilt the restaurant under the name Popeyes, after Popeye Doyle of the
film "The French Connection," this time focusing on spicy, New Orleans-style chicken.
Popeyes has taken off. Popeyes used to sell two bone-in chicken pieces for 59 cents. To mark the
occasion, the firm is bringing the bargain back for a week. Customers must first place a $5 minimum order on
either the Popeyes app or Popeyes.com in order to get it. From June 12 to June 19, you may take advantage of this offer.
