It’s no secret that Popeyes serves some of the best chicken meals in the country. But what is now a 2,000-strong restaurant chain had a completely ordinary beginning. In 1972, Alvin Copeland, Sr. opened Chicken on the Run in Arabi, New Orleans. It didn’t do well and a few months later, he reopened the restaurant as Popeyes – naming the restaurant after French Connection’s Popeye Doyle. By 1985, Popeyes opened its 500th restaurant in Maryland and today, they have over 2,000 restaurants all over the US and Canada.

Popeyes serve delicious authentic Louisiana chicken meals, seafood, sandwiches, desserts, drinks and of course, their signature sides and sauces. They pride themselves in adding a Southern flare to their meal preparation and they also take customer satisfaction very seriously.

They have set up the Popeyes Guest Survey so they can get their customers’ suggestions and advice on how they can better serve them. By participating in the survey, you could win an iPod instantly or even $1000 in cash, which is the grand prize.
