‘I’m back’: Popeyes’ hyped chicken sandwich returns to restaurants nationwide

‘I’m back’: Popeyes’ hyped chicken sandwich returns to restaurants nationwide

But the sandwiches quickly sold out by August 27 with the chain blaming "extraordinary demand", saying it was working with its suppliers to bring the sandwich back as soon as possible.

Hungry fans of Popeyes' new chicken sandwich eagerly lined up for its awaited return on Sunday at the chain's New Jersey locations - in at least two separate cases, taking out a lane of a highway with backed-up cars.

When Popeyes announced the release of their chicken sandwich in November, Branch said she wanted to try and get the sandwich again. The company says it was excited about National Sandwich Day and didn't realize it falls on Sunday.

Shai Branch and Jacob Sawyer tried to get the sandwich before it sold out, but they weren't able to.

Sunday eventually arrived with Popeyes tweeting, "Y'all...it's back".

On Sunday, which also happens to be National Sandwich Day in the United States (and the Sabbath, meaning direct competitor Chick-Fil-A will be closed), the Popeyes sandwich makes its long-awaited return.

"Honestly, I didn't know that this was happening, but my friend here, Ben, told me Popeyes was re-releasing this chicken sandwich", said Gates.

The restaurant's doors opened at 10 am and employees said they already had more than 10 cars in the drive-thru at 9:30. Stores have reportedly hired extra staff to meet demand, and remote trucks are rolling to capture the feeding frenzy at area locations.
