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.




5 Dollar Bonafied Big Box

The $5 Bonafide Big Box has returned to Popeyes restaurants for a limited time.

The $5 combo meal includes a choice of either two pieces of bone in fried chicken or three Handcrafted Tenders, plus two sides, and a buttermilk biscuit for $5.

The deal was first introduced back in 2014 and seems to be a fairly popular one for the chain as they brought it back twice last year. Compared to KFC's similar $5 Fill Up, you get an extra side versus a chocolate chip cookie and a drink.

You can find the $5 Bonafide Big Box at participating Popeyes locations through May 1, 2016, while supplies last.
