US Fried Chicken Chain Popeyes Opens First Branch in UK-Following 350 More

American fast food giant Popeyes is coming to the UK and hundreds of branches are set to open in the coming years.

Burger King’s fried chicken chain will open its first branch in the fall, with hundreds more, like rival KFC.

Following the launch, following the opening in Spain and Switzerland over the last two years, 350 stores will be added over the next five to ten years.

The company, first founded in 1972 in New Orleans, Louisiana, said it sees the UK as “the next big opportunity.”

Famous for chicken sandwiches, with secret recipes such as marinated chicken for 12 hours with local seasonings.

In the United States, the menu also includes boneless chicken, Cajun crispy shrimp, popcorn shrimp, flounder sandwiches, family feasts, and sides.

At this time, the UK menu has not been announced.

Elias Diaz Sese, co-founder of Popeyes UK, said the expansion in the UK could create hundreds of jobs.

“It’s hard to say exactly what the current scale is, but we aim to create hundreds of jobs in restaurants and supply chains.”

Elias said: “I haven’t confirmed anything yet, but I’m probably considering opening a flagship site in London.

“There is a great place to open all over the country and we are currently considering options.

“We are definitely looking at both busy city center locations and nearby high streets.”

When the brand is reportedly launched in the UK, both home delivery and takeaway will be available.

Wendy’s was founded in Ohio, USA in 1969 and is now the third largest hamburger chain in the world after McDonald’s and Burger King.

The popular chain store, which closed its last remaining UK branch in 1999, has revived and within a few months the first store opened in Reading.

Wendy’s, known for its square burgers, said it plans to open two new branches earlier this year, with more to come.

First in Reading, then in Oxford, the company “looks for additional opportunities” in London.

Wendy’s, the world’s third-largest burger chain after McDonald’s and Burger King, already has 6,700 stores in 30 countries around the world.

It’s joining a new race between American rivals Five Guys and Shake Shack, who have emerged in the UK over the last decade.

A Wendy’s spokesman said: “We can see Wendy’s opening in the UK earlier this year.

“Our first place is in Reading and we can also see that we will open a restaurant in Oxford.

“We are also looking for more opportunities in the London area.

“The brand is excited to enter the UK with its company-owned and operated restaurants this year. We are looking for franchisees to grow with us throughout the UK.”
