The original owner of Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen Restaurants was Al Copeland. He was born in 1944 and passed away in 2008. He opened the first Popeyes which was named "Chicken on the Run" on June 12, 1972, in Arabi, Louisiana, which is a suburb of New Orleans. He intended to compete with Kentucky Fried Chicken.

The restaurant failed after a couple of months, but he reopened four days later as Popeyes Mighty Good Chicken. The company was renamed as Popeyes Famous Fried Chicken by 1975. They started to franchise in 1976, and they opened their 500th restaurant in 1985.
