Popeyes says it has PERFORMED its new chicken sandwich – as a Georgia restaurant is considering stopping the sale because desperate customers continue to crash cars in the parking lot in their hurry to buy one
- The company tweeted a video on Tuesday afternoon announcing it has sold its new chicken sandwiches amid the viral social media frenzy
- The video showed a montage of long lines outside Popeyes restaurants and employees who & # 39; sold out & # 39; place signs in windows
- The company said the sandwiches would be back soon
- Apex Marketing estimates that the chicken chain has received $ 23.5 million in free advertising promotions on social media from fans of the chicken sandwich
- The pandemonium was also fueled by the & # 39; chicken war & # 39; of the company with rival Chick-Fil-A and other fast food chains such as Wendy's & Shake Shack
Social media hysteria about Popeye's new chicken sandwich has ensured that the fast food chain no longer has a popular product – at least for the time being.
The company announced that it was completely sold out & # 39; Tuesday afternoon was from all his chicken sandwiches, although certain locations were selling the same day what they still had in stock.
The overwhelming demand for both the classic and the spicy chicken sandwich seems to have surprised the company after the introduction of the new promotion nationwide on August 12.
& # 39; All of you. We love that you love The Sandwich. Unfortunately we are sold out (for the time being), & the company tweeted Tuesday at 4.11 p.m.
