The Popeyes restaurant in Hyderabad would be the 18th restaurant in India and fifth city in the South; he said that we have launched the flagship restaurants earlier in Bengaluru, Chennai, Manipal, and Coimbatore.

The meteoric success of Popeyes® is attributed to its meticulous hand breading, battering, and marinating of locally procured fresh chicken for a full 12 hours in distinctive Cajun seasonings – a classic fusion of cayenne pepper, garlic, onion, black and white pepper, and celery, guaranteeing a truly memorable gastronomic adventure with each bite, he said.
