Popeyes makes its UK debut at Westfield Stratford, London on 20 November where it will serve the chain’s first ever vegan option.

The vegan option will be rolling out in the UK before anywhere else in the world including America where the chain was founded.

The UK menu includes its famous Chicken Sandwich and Southern Biscuits & Gravy, which is a delicacy consisting of soft dough biscuits and a meaty sauce.

The iconic brand has thousands of fans in the US, yet it might be new to Brits on this side of the pond who have yet to discover Popeyes. The chain is one of the world’s largest chicken quick-service restaurants with over 3,400 restaurants in the U.S. and around the world.

As Popeyes opens its doors in Westfield Stratford City, Brits can expect to tuck into Popeyes’ first ever vegan product, which is The Creole Red Bean Sandwich. It will feature a juicy 100% plant-based red bean patty, crispy lettuce, tomato and Creole sauce in a soft brioche bun.

Popeyes take their sauces seriously and cannot wait to wow the British public with their extensive sauce options. Popular flavours include Mardi Gras Mustard, Bold BBQ, Mango Habanero and Ranch.

In the saucy line-up is Megan Thee Stallion’s highly anticipated ‘Hottie Sauce’ created by the Grammy Award-winning musician, entrepreneur and now US Popeyes franchise owner as part of her global partnership with Popeyes.

The chain itself is famous for its hand-battered chicken marinated for 12 hours in a blend of Louisiana herbs and spices inspired by its heritage. Their signature Louisiana chicken is available in two variations of classic or spicy, which is just one example of the menu catering for all including those who like it hot.

Fans of the brand can enjoy many of the classics found on the US menu including chicken tenders, hot wings, mac ‘n’ cheese and even Southern delicacy biscuits and gravy, which Popeyes famously serves with its Cajun gravy.

Whilst the food is classically US, all Popeyes chicken in its UK restaurants will be 100% UK sourced and fresh. The chain has signed up to the Better Chicken Commitment which holds its signatories accountable to stringent welfare, food quality and sustainability standards.

A milkshake and burger go hand in hand and Popeyes offerings will have sweet-toothed Brits thirsty for the brand’s new handspun shakes. Delicious shakes include Lotus Biscoff, Oreo flavours and classic sundaes to enjoy either alongside a Popeyes’ burger or simply as a takeaway milkshake.
