Chicken fans rejoice, there are some major developments with a very popular sandwich.

The Popeyes chicken sandwich Canada launch is in the works to happen later in the year and it's time to get excited!\nThere are a lot of Popeyes locations across Canada but the fast-food chain's now-famous sandwich never made it's way to the true north.\nChicken lovers nationwide had to watch as people in the U.S. got to feast on and fight over the sandwiches.\nNow Canadians will have the chance to go wild over the food when it finally launches here.\nOn February 14, a 680News reporter first tweeted that he got confirmation from Popeyes' chief corporate officer that there are plans to launch the sandwich here later in the year.\n"As previously reported we plan to bring the sandwich to Canada later this year, but have not yet announced specific dates," a Popeyes spokesperson told Narcity.\nThe all-white-meat breast fillet is marinated in a blend of authentic Louisiana seasonings and then hand-battered and breaded in a special buttermilk coating.\nIt's served with pickles and classic or spicy mayonnaise on a toasted brioche bun.\nSounds delicious!\nView this post on Instagram Glad that there’s no wait at @popeyeslouisianakitchen. 🍗 Their Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich is just as good as when we first had it! We were craving it after a weekend full of Chinese food. 😋 Have you finally tried it?! #nyfoodie #popeyeschickensandwich A post shared by Monica & Bruce 🍴Food + Travel (@ny.foodie) on Jan 27, 2020 at 5:38pm PST\nPopeyes announced the new sandwich in the south in August 2019 and its launch there had people lining up to get a taste.\nIt caused such an uproar that it actually sold out in the U.S.\nHowever, the hype around the sandwich did lead to a tragedy. Someone was killed by another customer after being confronted for cutting the line.\nView this post on Instagram POPEYES | Last time I went down to the states, I had to check out the hype on the Popeye’s chicken sandwich and it was pretty big good! It was perfectly crispy but I would say the sandwich was quite plain since it was bun and chicken. Nevertheless, I still really liked how flavourful the chicken was. Too bad I didn’t get to compare it with Chick-fil-A that day because they close on Sundays. I guess that means I gotta go to the States again and try them both side by side next time 🤤 #hkig #throwbackthursday A post shared by ian tang (@ianthefoodie) on Jan 23, 2020 at 6:01pm PST\n"Think of this as the iPhone of chicken sandwiches or the Air Jordan of chicken sandwiches. It’s not an ordinary sandwich," Felipe Athayde, Popeyes' president, told the Financial Post when it first launched.\nAthayde got lots of questions from people in Canada on when it would be coming up here.\n"Given the very strong response from Canada, one of the first things [the team was] briefed with was: Once we can make sure supplies are re-established here in the U.S., Canada will be definitely one of the first countries in consideration," he said.\nThe fast-food chain has also shown some love for Canada recently other than bringing its famous sandwich here.\nIn January it offered a Canadian woman $10,000 worth of Popeyes after a clip of her saying Popeye's favourite food was chicken on Family Feud went viral.
