Popeyes Celebrates Opening 3,000th Restaurant By Serving 24k Gold Chicken [VIDEO]
Is it even possible for Popeyes to make fried chicken even better than it already has?
The fried chicken chain already holds the crown when it comes to fried yardbird, but they elevated their game to celebrate their 3,000th location opening in New Jersey. How do you elevate what's already great?
You dip it in champagne and batter it with 24k gold.
That's exactly what Popeyes did—but they only did it in four cities for ONE day only. So the bad news is you won't be able to experience this unless you were in Anaheim, CA, New Orleans, LA, New York, NY or the 3000th location in Elizabeth, NJ today.
The good news is that if demand is high, Popeyes would consider adding the boneless wings flaked in gold to their menu at additional locations in the future.
Now that would be 24k magic.
