Popeyes forays into vegan options for U.K market


Popeyes forays into vegan options for U.K market

The iconic chicken sandwich brand has released its menu for U.K. locations, and has included vegan options

Popeyes has unveiled its menu for its U.K. locations ahead of the brand’s debut in November on British shores. The brand has laid plans to expand into the U.K. for some time and even changed its leadership structure to support the U.K. expansion

Beyond the typical Popeyes offering of chicken tenders, hot wings, mac ‘n’ cheese, Southern delicacy biscuits and gravy, Popeyes will be launching the Creole Red Bean sandwich in the U.K. before rolling it out to any other markets. The sandwich will feature a 100 per cent plant-based red bean patty with lettuce, tomato and Creole sauce in a soft brioche bun. 

The brand’s line-up of sauces will make the journey over the Atlantic too, with favourite such as Mardi Gras Mustard, Bold BBQ, Mango Habanero and Ranch appearing on U.K. menus. In addition to the staples, U.K. customers will also be able to enjoy the Megan Thee Stallion ‘Hottie Sauce’

The brand has also signed up to the Better Chicken Commitment. This holds signatories accountable for their animal welfare, food quality and sustainability practices to drive better processes. 100 per cent of all the chicken used in its U.K. locations will be sourced from the U.K. 

The new Popeyes location will open in the Westfield Statford City shopping center from the 20th November. 

It’s been a busy year for Popeyes, from meticulously planning its U.K. launch to tying up with Sterling Cruise to bring the brand to Romania for the first time.
