This Restaurant Got Caught Reselling Popeyes Fried Chicken As Its Own. But that doesn’t mean you want said apple pie pawned off as another restaurant ’s dish. “Before my friends and I got seated, we saw them quickly bring in two large boxes of Popeyes to the kitchen,” the user wrote in

Popeyes Launches Fried Chicken Sandwich by Teaming Up With Restaurant That Ripped Them Off

Two years ago, a small Southern-themed restaurant in Long Beach, California became a national media fixation when the owner got busted for reheating Popeyes fried chicken tenders and serving them to customers as part of a “chicken and waffles” special without disclosing the origin of that first ingredient. And now, in a bizarre but marketing-savvy twist, Popeyes is teaming up with the #popeyesgate restaurant — Sweet Dixie Kitchen — to help launch a new product.

Popeyes, Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich feud hits Twitter

Popeyes, Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich feud hits Twitter Popeyes and Chick-fil-A are locked in a fried-chicken feud after Popeyes debuted a new chicken sandwich.

Verdict: The sandwich that inspired our fried chicken sandwich - off immediately took its place in our hearts from the first bite. Shake Shack's winning combo of Martin's Potato Rolls and quality ingredients does it again, and features a HUGE, crunchy chicken patty that feels like a substantial meal.

It’s a fact that everyone loves Popeyes fried chicken , but maybe not when you’re eating at a restaurant that isn’t Popeyes . A Yelper has called out Sweet Dixie Kitchen in Long Beach, California, for using the chain’s chicken in one of its dishes.

The chain’s first-ever chicken sandwich — a buttermilk-battered chicken filet on a brioche bun with pickles and mayo — will be sold at Sweet Dixie Kitchen today and tomorrow as a teaser before it lands on Popeyes menus nationwide next Monday, August 12. Popeyes also filmed this commercial with the mastermind of the original chicken hoax, restaurateur Kimberly Sanchez, recounting the story of the scandal and the Yelp drama that ensued. After explaining her partnership with Popeyes on this new product launch, Sanchez remarks that “the universe is having a great sense of humor.”

This may seem like an odd pairing at first blush, but considering just how oversaturated the market is for fried chicken sandwiches these days, it makes sense that Popeyes would employ some sort of stunt to launch this product. Most fast food chains now sell fried chicken sandwiches. Popeyes is attempting to stand out in this overcrowded field by invoking a viral moment that showcased just how much people like the chain’s chicken — enough for a restaurateur to put it on her menu, and for customers to pay $13 to eat it, reheated. And while it’s a little bit weird that Popeyes is using this small restaurant’s saga to hawk its own new product, this is only the latest example of a brand breaking the fourth wall and not nearly the strangest — that honor goes to KFC, which sent a fried chicken sandwich into outer space.

Earer LA reports that Sweet Dixie Kitchen appears to be changing hands this weekend. If this is indeed the last hurrah for Sanchez and her team, it’s perhaps fitting that they will end Sweet Dixie Kitchen’s run doing the thing that they became famous for in the first place: reselling chicken from Popeyes.
