The company inaugurated its first restaurant in Bengaluru, which was followed by rapid expansion to 12 restaurants across the city in less than a year.

In Chennai, the brand would welcome guests at its first restaurant from January 20 onwards at the Phoenix Marketcity Mall, the company said in a BSE filing.

“Consumers across the world love the Louisiana style Cajun flavours of Popeyes. As a company, we are focused on bringing the finest taste of our brands, building it and expanding it to multiple cities. We offer consumers a chance to enjoy the unique blend of spices and Cajun flavoured fried chicken,” company CEO and MD, Sameer Khetarpal said.

“Our launch in Chennai with the first store at Phoenix Marketcity mall is a testament to that commitment of the larger strategy.”

Jubilant Food Works Ltd has built an in-house delivery fleet with one hundred per cent use of e-bikes to delivery of Popeyes experience to consumers.

Founded in 1972, the Popeyes® brand has more than 50 years of history and culinary tradition. Popeyes® owes its beginnings to entrepreneur and culinary innovator, Al Copeland. With one small restaurant and a big idea, Copeland introduced the New Orleans–style fried chicken that has now made the brand famous throughout the world. Company’s culinary heritage is built upon the rich Cajun and creole flavor profiles that are unmistakably Louisiana.
