Popeyes History

Popeyes is a wholly owned subsidiary of AFC Enterprises, Inc.

Popeye’s was founded by Al Copeland in 1972 as Chicken on the Run.  The first restaurant was located in Arabi, Louisiana.  After initially losing money, Copeland changed the recipe to a spicier blend and re-opened the restaurant as Popeyes Mighty Good Fried Chicken.

In 1976, the first franchise location opened in Baton Rouge.

By 1986, there were 500 restaurants in the chain.

In 1989, Popeyes merged with Church’s Chicken under the AFC Enterprises umbrella company.  AFC sold Church’s in 2004.

In 2008, founder Al Copeland died.

Today, the company operates over 1800 restaurants in 40 US states and 22 countries worldwide.   They are the second largest chicken fast food restaurant in the world.

Initially I ordered through the Drive Through I was rushed because the young lady said she was on a timer.
I purchased the food for my husband. When I got home and gave him the food the corn was brown rotten like, and the chicken was dry and old.
I called over the phone spoke with Donna the manager she asked me to bring the food back and she would return my money.
When I arrived they had 2 other issues before me and when I was finally seen by Donna, she referred me to another manager. She was a shift leader. She never acknowledged me and had the nerve to have an attitude and didn’t make any eye contact.
Then I became disgusted because the store was nasty it was chicken grease all over the floor the only employee that looked half way decent as far as hygiene was Donna. I have pictures of the rotten corn and the dry chicken.
My whole issue is that when you serve someone something that is not pleasing to the eye. I would ask myself, would I eat this? If it doesn’t look appealing to me then surely it will not look appealing to someone else. The attitude that I received behind this entire ordeal was if I owed them something, and I’m the customer. My experience was Ghetto, unpleasant just down right pitiful. I believe it was disrespectful to Popeye’s chicken branding and that store should be retrained and all existing employees should be fired.
I was able to take pictures but I haven’t posted them yet I will give you guys a chance to make this occurrence right. Even though I was able to get refunded this entire complaint should’ve never happened. We have to do better!
Please note that this isn’t the first time that this has happened but it is definitely is the last! I hope you change for your business sake

I was a manager at popeyes2576 I. Hillside new jersey and went to another popeyes in Newark to work. The district manager from hillside came into my work and made terrorist threats saying that he would get me fired from that location just because he has that kind of power. The POPEYES in hillside had gotten several health inspections weeks after I left and he blames me for that. He also made thretts stating that he would get me killed if i ever came around or near the store again. He also brought another manager that in the last month with his Father pulled a weapon on me. To where I work. On the next day when I was to receive my last check for $1768.00 was not there. I notified the owner and told him about the terrorist threats. He assured me that he would write me out a check and the he would speak to the district manager asap. And get back to me that day..that was 3 days ago. As of now I fear for my life so much that I went to the hospital. As of nowy blood pressure is 169 over 110. I can’t sleep . they the doctors have diagnosed me also a mental disorder due to work related issues. (Christopher pity. I’m asking anyone THAT reads this reach out to not onlye but the company. I NEED as much of support as I can get. I have all the texts that he sent and asking the manager from the other store to save the videos. To help my claim. I will be making a report to the police and if need be go the press. I’m sending this to all of me 768 face book friends.. So if things happen u guys know where to look…this is charles lloyd 908374****.

I visit location #2843. This location has the worst service ever. I wanted to order the full order of gizzards as a combo. The full doesn’t come in combo. You can’t have Mardi Gras sauce unless you by chicken tenders. You can’t even buy it. And you have to use the feedback coupon that’s on the back in 3 days of which you got receipt. Please do not go to this Popeyes in KC on Prospect.

me and my family stop in to the new popeyes in niagara falls new york to eat dinner. i must say it was by far the worst place i ever went to for dinner. we could not understand anyone who worked there,the chicken was so dry that if you put it in a gallon of water it would still be dry.the large side dishes were so small we were lucky if we each had a spoonfull the price was really high.and they seem to want to only give the wing pieces in the 11 piece chicken.when i took it back up to let them know the worker grab the chicken with there bare hands and put it back on the warmer.i for one can say i will never ever go there again.the workers all were so disrespectful and rude. the floors were dirty and tables were not clean.plus we didnt ge all of are order,and they wanted to charge us 3.99 for a small drink.i really dont understand how you can stay open when you treat people like that.from now on when my family wants chicken we will go to wendys for there chicken sandwich, cause it will be better and not as dry as the chicken from popeyes.

My husband and I ate at Popeyes in Rome Georgia this afternoon and our order was not right my husband went up and told them that he ordered regular chicken and not spicey and could he please get what he ordered, they fixed the order but all of them had to laugh about it first, then the second shift supervisor came in to work and he got their early so we sat in the dining room cursing the whole time talking about his personal life this is uncalled for and very disrespectful for the customers. We love Popeyes chicken better than any other but we will not be eating their anymore. My question to you is this is this the only type of people that you can find to hire for employment especially supervisors?
