Popeyes to Debut Its First Sandwich

The item, which premieres next week and contains pickles, is very similar to rival Chick-fil-A's classic chicken sandwich.It will be served on a toasted brioche bun along with a choice of either a classic mayo or spicy Cajun spread.With its new sandwich, Popeyes is hoping the item will help out same-store sales growth, which increased 3% in the most recent quarter.The nationwide release also comes as Popeyes attempts to keep up with Chick-fil-A's rising profile in the U.S.In terms of sales, it was recently named America's third-largest restaurant chain.Chick-fil-A also ranks first in the fast-food category on the American Customer Satisfaction Index for 2019.
