About Popeyes, History and Headquarters Information


Popeyes was founded in the year 1972. The company has been active for almost 47 years now. The founder of the company was Al Copeland. The company had first opened its doors in the year 1972, named as 'Chicken on the Run'. The founder of the company wanted to compete with Kentucky Fried Chicken or KFC, but his restaurant failed after several months. As per the company's history states, it had sold 'traditional mild fried chicken', but the company's business was slow, and the chicken team realized the company have to sell a spicier alternative to their standard chicken recipe if they wanted to impress flavour-seeking customers.

The founder of the company had reopened the restaurant four days later, renamed as 'Popeyes Mighty Good Chicken'. By the year 1975, the company was again renamed as Popeyes Famous Fried Chicken. The company founder started franchising his restaurant in the year 1976, beginning in Louisiana, USA. The chain had expanded to Canada in the year 1984 and reopened its 500th restaurant in 1985. BP Newman had acquired several franchises in Texas, USA, and surrounding states as well. Two hundred more additional locations were also added during a period of slower expansion. In the year 1990, Copeland Enterprises was in default on almost $391 million in overall debts, and in the year 1991, the company had filed for bankruptcy protection. During the year 1992, the court had approved a plan by a group of Copeland's creditors that had resulted in the creation of America's Favorite Chicken Company or AFC, in order to serve as the new parent company for entities like Popeyes and Church's - which another fast-food chain specializing in chicken as well. AFC had become a limited public entity in the year 2001 with its IPO or Initial Public Offering. Then in the year 2014, the company had announced it had re-acquired full control of its seasonings, recipes, and other proprietary food preparation techniques as well, from Diversified Foods & Seasonings - which had remained under the control of the company's founder and his estate after the creditor sale of Popeyes to AFC. The company had continued to license the seasonings, recipes, and techniques from DF&S for a yearly price as 'spice royalty', before buying them outright for almost $43 million. DFS still remains the leading supplier for Popeyes, until the year 2029. The headquarters of the company is based in 400 Perimeter Center Terrace NE Suite 1000. The name of the place is Atlanta, while the name of the state is Georgia, USA. The pin code of the area is 30346.

    Good Morning! I wanted to complain about the Popeyes located at 16th & Chestnut Streets in Philadelphia, PA. The staff (manager and cashiers) are simply horrible. I went after work one day last week and my stay was about 45 minutes. When I placed my order it was incorrect (I asked for a 3 piece dark meat and received a 3 piece white meat). When I took it back to the counter for a replacement, the young lady was very indignant with me and wanted to know who took my order. (Did it matter at that point?). I received the meal that I asked for and in the space of the time that I was there, the staff was in THREE different arguments with the customers. I’m talking yelling and almost in fight mode. One of the cashiers came from behind the desk and argued with this customer and followed her to the door! Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Popeye’s chicken but I will not go to that location again. Whomever is the manager/district manager for that area really needs to go into that location incognito and see what is going on. Are not these people trained properly? Will the manager let the cashiers talk to the customers in a rude manner and not stop the nonsense before it goes too far and someone gets hurt? I don’t want to see any one in this day and age lose their jobs but this has got to stop. If this happened in the 45 minutes that I was there that day, how many times a day/week does this happen. I assume it would be worth the time and effort to investigate. Thank you.

    Please De Jesus Santoro take a minute of your time to have the Clermont, Florida restaurant, new to our area reviewed by one of your site managers. In my opinion the owner of this location is doing the minimum when it comes to making sure that his restaurant is fully staffed and has sufficient food.


    Good afternoon , I have tried on a number of occasions to contact someone at the corporate level to no avail;i am a consumer as well as a customer at several of your establishments located in the Cleveland OHIO AREA TO start off your establishments are nicely decorated for the most park clean, However , across the board I have noticed the customer service is not very pleasant . this is a problem that starts with the management team and the trickle down effect makes my self as others very disappointed. the closes Popeyes to my home is approx 7-10 miles can you imagine the number of eatery places i have passed only to get to Popeyes, It is very upsetting to know your are going to travel this distance only to get rude service from counter personal and if you ask to speak with a manager what you get is another version of disappointment with a title as well possibly told you can get hand laid on you if you do not leave the premises.this is what i endured today at ONE OF YOUR ESTABLISHMENTS. WE OR YOU ALL MUST DO BETTER THAN THIS.

      Dear Millicent, the same thing happen to me here in Lithonia, GA. I believe that it is an epidemic of disrespect and companies who don’t care about customers service whatsoever, all they want is the money. As I noted to the manager of the location that I visited on May 11th, it’s poor management and you are so right, it trickles down. After I asked for a refund I was told to leave the premises as well and it was not necessary because I was already outside the door walking towards my car when the police ran upon me! No matter how much we complaint or write in you’ll never get a response or any action because upper management doesn’t care. The workers don’t even wear gloves and some don’t wear hair nets, it’s bad all the way around.

      It can only last but so long eventually it will be the restaurant’s demise. It may take another 10 years but it will go under just like Payless, Sears, KMart and many other large companies.
