Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is set to develop and open more than 1500 Popeyes restaurants in Mainland China over the next 10 years.
Popeyes China will be the last of Restaurant Brands International’s three major brands to enter the Chinese market. Burger King has operated in the territory since 2005, and it now has more than 1000 locations in China.
“We’re very excited to grow the Popeyes brand in the Chinese market,” said Restaurant Brands International COO Josh Kobza. “We look forward to bringing our great tasting chicken, biscuits, sides and beautiful new restaurants to our guests in China with our partner, TAB Food Investments.”
Popeyes operates more than 3100 locations in more than 25 countries worldwide, including the United States and Canada. The commencement of Popeyes China operations is subject to regulatory clearances.
