Popeyes serves food the world craves and is continuing to expand globally. Popeyes was founded in New Orleans in 1972 and is the world's 2nd largest fried chicken QSR based on the number of units. Within the QSR industry, Popeyes distinguishes itself with a unique New Orleans style menu that features spicy chicken, chicken sandwiches, chicken tenders, fried shrimp and seafood, jambalaya, red beans and rice, and other regional items.

In addition to offering a unique QSR brand offering authentic and flavourful Louisiana food, our professionals work diligently alongside the Franchisees to ensure the franchising process is smooth and straight forward. Popeyes offers a wide variety of services including support in real estate selection, restaurant design and layout, equipment drawings, purchasing support, training and opening support. We also offer ongoing assistance through additional training, operation advisory assistance, marketing assistance, operation manuals and revisions, supplier relations and periodic evaluations of restaurants and operating systems.

Training & Support

Popeyes® provides support in different ways: through our Atlanta-based Global Service Center, our field-based team, and via technology. Popeyes is there to support the growth of the brand!

Your Popeyes Support Team will assist you in defining the best way to launch the Popeyes brand in your market. Together, we will complete a comprehensive Brand Positioning Study that will act as a guide for making decisions regarding facilities, menu, marketing and more. Once we determine the menu for your market, we'll help build your market-specific supply chain. We know that paying attention to restaurant profits is critical to Popeyes long-term success.

Popeyes will support you in determining the optimum Market Development Plan. How many restaurants and where? What type of venues? These are questions that are vital to building the brand successfully and achieving the economies of scale necessary to realize your profit goals.

Popeyes has strict procedures and operating standards. Your management team (including at least four managers per restaurant) will be trained through the Popeyes Management Certification program.

Every international franchisee has a primary support person called the Regional Leader (RL). This highly experienced and trained restaurant professional will live in your market or region. The RL will be your consultant on all matters regarding your Popeyes restaurant franchise.

Additionally, at the Popeyes Global Service Center, there is a dedicated team to support the Popeyes international system in areas including Development Services, Marketing & Advertising, Supply Chain, Operations and Training.

Popeyes also has developed a state-of-the-art Web portal to access around the clock support. If you need access to video training, management tools, contact information, marketing tools, or the operations manual, this web portal is there for you and your team.
