Renowned Popeye’s chicken sandwich coming to T&T

A chicken sandwich of legends is set to hit Trinidad and Tobago’s market courtesy Popeyes Chicken.

Last year in August, Popeyes shut the fast-food world down with the launch of a very special chicken sandwich. Starting this Friday, T&T will have their turn to experience ‘The Sandwich’ that caused four-hour-long lines in China and sold out across the United States in just three weeks.

Brand Manager for Popeyes, Michelle Borel promised that this sandwich is going to be a unique experience for anyone who has it.

“It’s dubbed ‘The Sandwich’ because it is the sandwich of all sandwiches. The chicken breast is a full muscle fillet that you’re getting; it covers the entire bun. It’s a highlight of this sandwich together with the mayonnaise (mild or spicy), the barrel cured pickles, the bread (Brioche Bun), everything coming together makes it unique. It’s really a taste that cannot be described, it’s something you need to try for yourself and fall in love at first bite,” she said.

Restaurant Holdings Limited is the franchisee for Popeyes. They’ve been serving the Trinidad market for just over 15 years and continue to be of service within the community. The company is proud to have been part of various corporate responsibility initiatives and are committed to offering quality product at a great value.

Popeyes offers a variety of options on their menu such as chicken on the bone, tenders, seafood and a wide range of signature sides such as the guest favourite cajun fries, coleslaw, mashed potatoes & gravy, vegetable rice & buttermilk biscuits.

Borel promises that ‘The Sandwich’ is a testament of that quality and value.

“It’s about the bold flavour that we offer, the 12-hour marination. It’s basically about what we say here in T&T like ‘when Granny used to make’.

“It’s a process that takes place from even the night before and that’s exactly what we do at Popeyes; we put that love and that extra ‘oomph’ into everything that we do. That’s what makes Popeyes different to everything else that’s out there,” she promised.

‘The Sandwich’ will be available from Friday, October 23 for $35 at all local Popeyes locations. There are currently five locations: Movie Towne (Port-of-Spain), Grand Bazaar, Price Plaza, Trincity Mall & Churchill Roosevelt Highway. Curb-side pickup and delivery are also available via Hello Food Trinidad.
