It is not clear whether there will be any job cuts, store closings, or changes in the menu, but Restaurant Brands International, owner of Burger King and Tim Horton’s coffee and doughnut chain, just announced on Tuesday the price they are willing to put on Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen…$1.8 billion! Popeyes is indeed a popular demanded fast food brand with affordable and reliable chicken in which Restaurant Brand CEO, Daniel Schwartz, says he’s ready to take to the next level of growth. Will adding Popeyes under the list of Restaurant Brand owned fast food brands be a standout in the market for chicken franchises? We’ll see!
“Pay attention over the next few years, hopefully this doesn’t affect the food at Popeyes, but you never know. The chain has already been immortalized in more than one hip hop track, most notably “Popular Demand (Popeyes)” by Clipse.
