Popeyes adds nuggets to menu after sandwich success
(WEWS) - We could be seeing a chicken nugget war in our future.
Popeyes is adding nuggets to the menu after the popularity of its chicken sandwich.
The item is essentially a smaller, bun-less version of the sandwich and uses the same fried chicken breaded in buttermilk.
Popeyes started the so-called chicken sandwich wars in 2019 when it first introduced its new chicken sandwich.
The item sold out in less than two weeks and encouraged other fast-food chains to add or update their own chicken sandwiches.
Right now, some restaurants are facing supply issues due to a chicken shortage.
Popeyes is confident that won’t impact the nugget rollout on July 27.
