Popeye’s is getting launched in South Korea, according to a press release from Restaurant Brands International. That’s pretty exciting, because Popeye’s is known for having some pretty incredible chicken. I haven’t even had their bone-in stuff, we’re talking chicken strips here. Their strips are phenomenal with that seasoning they’ve got.
I think they’ll probably be a hit in South Korea, unless the menu is different to reflect international tastes being different. That could possibly happen, although I’m sure that they’ll stay true to the core of what their business is and have at least some Louisiana-style chicken there.
According to the Restaurant Brands International press release, they will be opening hundreds of restaurants.
