We “ate ’em all.”
After the end of this week, there will be no more Popeyes chicken sandwiches — with the company announcing Tuesday that it had run through its inventory.
“We’re sold out” Popeyes said in a video posted to its Twitter page.
But don’t fret, fried chicken fans.
The fast-food chain plans to have the beloved sandwich back at locations everywhere in the near future, it’s just not sure when yet.
“We are so thankful,” said Popeyes, which launched the $3.99 sammy on Aug. 12.
“You ate ’em all. (Legit proud of you),” the company added. “They’ll be back soon. For. Good. Pinky swear.”
People have been flocking to their nearest Popeyes in recent weeks to try the new menu item after a Twitter feud was sparked between it and Chick-fil-A over who had the best sandwich.
Popeyes had “aggressively forecasted demand through the end of September,” but was already sold through its inventory by the start of this week, a spokesperson said.
“As a result, Popeyes restaurants across the country are expected to sell out of the Chicken Sandwich by the end of the week,” explained rep Brooke Scher Mogan in a statement Tuesday. “We, along with our suppliers, are working tirelessly to bring the new sandwich back to guests as soon as possible.”
Popeyes has been directing people to its app for more info on when the sandwich returns.
