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.
