Popeyes offers a playful solution to its chicken sandwich shortage

Chicken sandwich

Late last month, Popeyes released a statement saying that the run on the new menu item, which debuted August 12, meant that locations around the country would not be able to offer it until they could restock. In the meantime, they're offering guests a way to ease their sorrows and cravings, with "Bring Your Own Bun".

Craving the new Popeyes chicken sandwich? The BYOB option is their three chicken tenders combo but you have to bring your own bun, mayo, and pickles. Popeyes says it is still working on getting the sandwich back into restaurants.

Besides being loved for being delicious, the sandwiches caused a hilarious feud on Twitter between the restaurant and Wendy's, Chick-fil-A and other fast-food chains.

The savvy social-media antics sparked an unprecedented fried-chicken craze that reportedly caused the chain to blow through seven weeks of inventory in less than two weeks.


As hungry customers around the country continue to lament the shortage of Popeye's new chicken sandwiches, the company suggested a life hack to help those who can't wait. In a more frightening incident, a "hangry" mob, including a man with a gun, stormed a Texas outlet upon learning that they were sold out.

Locations in Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Lansing are selling out of the new Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen chicken sandwich.

Cil added, "We've added a new item to our checklist: What happens if we break the internet".
