Popeyes ® Louisiana Kitchen, a division of AFC Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: AFCE), today launches six Signature Sauces — Bayou Buffalo, Barbeque, Sweet Heat, Mardi Gras Mustard, Buttermilk Ranch, and Blackened Ranch — to complement its flavorful tenders that are freshly battered and breaded. Starting August 27, guests can enjoy three delectable Handcrafted Tenders, Cajun fries, a biscuit, and a choice of one of six Signature Dipping Sauces for just $3.99. And, throughout the month of September*, guests will also receive three FREE Handcrafted Tenders with the purchase of an 8 pc box or bundle or larger at regular menu price. Popeyes is dedicated to providing delicious, premium, freshly prepared products, and chicken fanatics know that because of this, they will experience the best tenders in the business. What makes these tenders so special? Popeyes Handcrafted Tenders are always 100% breast meat, never formed or pressed, marinated in Louisiana seasonings, hand battered and breaded, then cooked up fresh at Popeyes just for you! “Many chicken tenders are formed and pressed in a factory and then thrown straight from the freezer into the fryer at the restaurant. At Popeyes, we refuse to take these kinds of shortcuts,” said Dick Lynch, chief global brand officer at Popeyes. “We are thrilled to show our guests how chicken tenders should taste and prove to them that our signature Louisiana twist will keep them coming back for more.” Beginning on August 20, guests who craft their combo will also get tagged! Any guest who comes into Popeyes and orders a combo meal will receive a limited-time only Dr Pepper Savings Tag*. In September, when guests return to order a combo meal with a drink, and show their savings tag, they have the choice to upsize their drink size for FREE. In addition, each tag has a unique code for guests to enter at www.Popeyes.com/DrPepper any time between August 20 and September 30 for a chance to win additional Popeyes Handcrafted Tenders food prizes!
