A group of two women and three men didn’t like that Popeyes had sold out of their renowned chicken sandwich.
A few short weeks ago, Popeyes issued a heartbreaking statement via Twitter about the highly coveted chicken sandwich, "Unfortunately, we're sold out (for now)."
We assume that most sensible people read the statement, acknowledged it, forcefully hindered any craving for the popular sandwich, went to a different fast food restaurant and moved on.
But the sold-out sandwich caused an uproar! The USA went into a chaotic, Joey-Tribbiani-like frenzy over the chicken sandwich, which debuted on August 12th and sold-out in less than a month.
Popeyes informed their followers that the sandwich would come back ASAP and asked people to download the app, so those desiring the sandwich could receive a notification once the crunchy, appetising delight came back in stock.
Jose Cil, CEO of Restaurant Brands International, addressed the situation that has put America into an apocalyptic-like mania: "We didn't expect to break the internet, and we had the entire nation really excited about the Popeyes chicken sandwich. And as a result, we ran out much sooner than we anticipated."
One Popeyes in Henderson, Nevada had to temporarily shut down due to the massive disarray unfolding. Apparently, cars were lining up into Popeyes neighbours, Wendy’s, prompting complaints from the fast-food restaurant. You’d think people could’ve fulfilled their cravings by dipping french fries into a Wendy’s frosty…
However, one group of people took matters to the extreme when they pulled up to Popeyes. And one member of the group completely lost his temper. What happened when the group found out that the sandwich had sold out? Tune into our video for more information.
