The Popeyes franchise, now known as Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen has over a dozen locations throughout Connecticut state. The 13 locations include; Hamden, Bristol, Enfield, New Britain, Milford, New London, Norwalk, Orange, North Haven, Southington, Trumbull, Wethersfield and Wallingford. According to The Daily Meal "Founded in 1972, Popeyes has more than 40 years of history and culinary tradition. Popeyes owes its beginnings to entrepreneur and culinary innovator, Al Copeland. With one small restaurant and a big idea, Copeland introduced the New Orleans–style fried chicken that has now made the brand famous throughout the world. Popeyes culinary heritage is built upon the rich Cajun and creole flavor profiles that are unmistakably Louisiana. We continuously draw upon and celebrate this heritage to inspire new, authentic menu creations the world craves."
"Popeyes distinguishes itself with a unique New Orleans style menu featuring spicy chicken, chicken tenders, fried shrimp and other regional items. This unique and flavorful food has allowed Popeyes to become one of the world's largest chicken quick service restaurants, with over 2,700 restaurants in the U.S. and around the world."
