Popeyes UK to launch four new London sites

Less than 18 months since landing in the UK, Popeyes UK has announced the launch of a further four sites in London – meaning the fast-growing chicken chain can now serve its hungry fans across every corner of the city.

The latest additions to the line-up are new in-line restaurants in Richmond, Woolwich and Kilburn, following the opening of its latest delivery kitchen over in Wood Green.

The Richmond restaurant will be the first to arrive, throwing its doors open on Thursday 4 May 2023 – located in the heart of the riverside town on The Quadrant, just 200m from Richmond train station.

To celebrate the hotly anticipated Richmond launch, Popeyes will be pulling out all the stops with Mardi Gras-style band, The Brass Funkeys, showcasing its Southern hospitality and bringing the sound of New Orleans to those first customers through the doors.

Early queuers will even have the chance to win a year’s supply of Popeyes’ legendary Chicken Sandwich, awarded to the first three people in the queue on opening day (4 May). The first 25 customers on opening day will receive a free Chicken Sandwich and exclusive Popeyes merchandise.

Richmond’s opening will also see the cult chicken brand roll out its breakfast menu for the first time in the city. Lucky Londoners will be able to get their hands on The Big Breakfast Roll, Cajun seasoned hash browns, as well as an indulgent Nutella-topped take on its famous Southern biscuit.

The first 25 customers on day two (5 May) will receive a free breakfast muffin and exclusive Popeyes merchandise.

Tom Byng, Chief Development Officer at Popeyes UK, commented, “London is naturally a key market for us, and we want to make sure no borough is underserved.

'We acquire and open sites based on market demand, and it turns out that every corner of the city loves flavourful, spicy chicken as much as we do. We’re looking forward to continuing our expansion.”
