About Popeye's®

Dirty Rice

Popeyes Chicken &Biscuits is a chain of fried chicken fast food restaurants, first opened in Arabi, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans, in 1972 by Al Copeland. Popeyes is the second-largest "QSR chicken restaurant group, measured by number of units", with more than 1,800 restaurants in more than 40 states, including Puerto Rico and 20 countries worldwide along the Pacific Rim, and Central and South America.

In 1976, Copeland began franchising his restaurant adding approximately 500 outlets over the next 10 years. He always claimed he named the stores after the fictional detective Jimmy "Popeye" Doyle in the movie The French Connectionand not the comic character Popeye the Sailor, but later did acquired rights to use Popeye the Sailor for marketing. The company's early brand became deeply tied to the comic character with its sponsorship of the "Popeye &Pals" children's show in New Orleans, and the character appeared on items from packaging to racing boats.
