Popeyes is relaunching its popular chicken sandwich in about 150 franchise-owned Popeyes locations beginning in early November, Bloomberg first reported on Wednesday.




The restaurants will reportedly hire an additional 400 employees to manage the expected demand and could designate up to two people per store to make the coveted menu item.




Popeyes' wildly popular chicken sandwich sold out just two weeks after it originally launched in August.




"We, along with our suppliers, are working tirelessly to bring the new sandwich back to guests as soon as possible," the company told Business Insider after the item ran out in August.




"Our franchisees have worked to increase staffing," Restaurant Brands, the parent company to Popeyes, said in a statement to Bloomberg. "We have been working diligently to bring the sandwich back to our restaurants soon, as we know our guests are anxiously anticipating its return."




The menu item soared in popularity as a result of a Twitter spat between Popeyes and Chick-fil-A, causing employees to go into overdrive to fulfill orders.

It's back. Sort of.
After selling out just two weeks after it was introduced, Popeyes' highly popular chicken sandwich is coming back to around 150 franchise-owned stores in early November, Bloomberg's Leslie Patton reported on Wednesday.
About 150 Popeyes locations operated by Sun Holdings Inc. will offer the sandwich starting in early November, the company's CEO Guillermo Perales told Bloomberg. He added that the restaurants are hiring an additional 400 employees to manage the hype and could designate up to two people per store to make the coveted menu item.
