Spice Up Your Holidays With Popeyes Cajun Turkey

Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen, a division of AFC Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: AFCE), today announces the return of its holiday menu must-have, Cajun Turkey, to give your dinner table some Louisiana flare. Popeyes Cajun Style Turkeys, approximately 9 to 11 pounds, are infused with a unique blend of Louisiana seasonings then flash-fried, creating a unique, crispy coating. Roasting finishes out the process and leaves the turkey crispy on the outside while remaining succulent and flavorful on the inside. The once-a-year limited time offer is available at participating restaurants through December, or until supplies last.

“The holiday season always seems to come and go too quickly,” said Marianna Magee, brand marketing and innovation manager. “This year, Popeyes is cherishing time spent around the dinner table with family and friends with its Next Day Cajun Turkey Recipe for even more memories shared.”
