AFC Enterprises, Inc., through its ownership of the Popeyes Chicken and Biscuits and Churchs Chicken chains, holds the number two position in the U.S. fast-food chicken sector, trailing only KFC. . The Popeyes chain, specializing in a Cajun-style fried chicken that is spicier than most conventional recipes, consists of 1,325 units, 1,152 of which are franchised.

The first Popeyes was opened by Al Copeland in June 1972. By the early 1980s, Popeyes was the third largest fast-food chicken chain, behind KFC and Churchs. New menu items included chicken tacos, barbecued beans, red beans and rice, and, most important, a new biscuit.





Popeyes Copycat Recipe

In food processor, process:
1 - 2 heads of cabbage
1/4 to 1/2 green pepper
1/4 to 1/2 small onion
1 medium to large carrot

In bowl, mix until smooth:
2 cups Miracle Whip
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Combine processed veggies with dressing (dressing should have a hint of sweetness to it). Refrigerate to marry flavors 2 hours.


  1. This cannot be correct, because Popeye's cole slaw has pickles in it.

  2. That was my comment as well-I believe it has sweet pickle relish in it.

  3. Not even close to being correct )dill pickle is missing and some of the other items are not even in the recipe (and wrong items).
