The Popeyes chicken sandwich became a bit of a phenomenon, and as quickly as it came, it left with mobs of fans upset at the decision.
Popeyes said they “sold out,” which didn’t make a whole lot of sense, but none of that matters, because it’s coming back after a two month hiatus.
Recently, Popeyes is sending out targeted Instagram ads saying, “The sandwich is coming soon.”
The catch is that they want you to download their app first, so you can be the first to know about the launch. If you do download the app, you’re greeted with a “Chicken Sandwich, Be Right Back,” as a little teaser.
Unfortunately, Popeyes has not even hinted at a timetable, so we have to go off their “coming soon,” ad.
Being punked into downloading a fast food app is never fun, and restaurants try it often, but if you really miss the Popeyes chicken sandwich, it might be worth it for the potential of an in-app deal, as most restaurants tend to give out on their apps.
