American fried chicken restaurant Popeyes is opening the doors to its first North West restaurant in Liverpool this November, following the success of a string of new openings across the UK, including Nottingham, Gateshead, and Oxford.
The store will officially open on Lord Street in Liverpool on Saturday 26th November, and following the success of previous launches, it is advised to get down quickly as queues are expected for the famed chicken from the early morning hours.
To celebrate the Liverpool launch, Popeyes® UK will be pulling out all the stops to showcase its Southern hospitality, including rolling out an orange carpet, distributing limited-edition merchandise and hosting a live Mardi Gras style band, the Brass Funkeys, to bring the sound of New Orleans to the city.
Chicken fans will be able to experience the world famous ‘shatter crunch’ for themselves once they get their hands on the mouth-watering menu, including the iconic Popeyes Chicken Sandwich which contains the brand’s 12-hour marinated chicken, and original Southern biscuits and gravy.
What’s more, the first three customers through the door on launch day will win free Chicken Sandwiches for a whole year* – the ultimate prize for every fried chicken fan, with the first fifty customers also being rewarded with a free Chicken Sandwich and official Popeyes® UK merchandise.
Tom Crowley, CEO of Popeyes®, said:
“We’re excited to be kicking off our North West expansion in the heart of Liverpool – it is a thriving and great city. We had fans travel down from Liverpool to our Stratford opening so we know Liverpool fans will be excited to get their hands on a Popeyes® Chicken Sandwich .”
The much-loved American brand, which boasts the Chicken Sandwich that broke the internet, has already launched 8 restaurants and 4 delivery kitchens across the UK, and is on a mission for further expansion, with 20 new restaurants expected to open in 2023, including drive-thru.
Popeyes® Liverpool will open on 59-61 Lord Street from 11am on Saturday 26th November and will seat up to 116 people.
