Popeyes Launches ‘Bring Your Own Bun’ Campaign Amidst No Sandwich Chaos

Last month, Popeyes debuted the new Popeyes chicken sandwich that gave Chick-Fil-A a run for their money. People flocked to their nearest Popeyes, waited in lines for HOURS for the sandwich, and even incited violence at some locations when the sandwich was unavailable.

Since the chicken sandwich shortage, Popeyes has now launched an almost satirical, but real, “BYOB” campaign: aka bring your own bun. In the video, viewers see that it’s basically a three chicken tender meal, and you bring your own bun. Boom, you have a chicken sandwich! The only thing is, you actually bring in your own bun. 

Overall, it’s pretty comical. Check out the video below.


Just bring the chicken sandwich back, Popeyes. 


“While we work to get the sandwich back in our restaurants, we wanted to offer our guests a fun way to satisfy their Popeyes sandwich cravings.”
– Bruno Cardinali, Popeyes’ head of marketing for North America.
