Barrhead Restaurant loved by Beyonce to give away 1,000 free chicken sandwiches

Popeyes Glasgow

POPEYES® UK is pulling out all the stops to showcase its Southern hospitality as it brings a taste of New Orleans to Scotland. On Friday (15th Sept) a 6-metre-long carnival float brought the Mardi Gras experience to Glasgow with Scotland’s national piper, Louise Marshall jamming with New Orleans style brass band The Brass Funkeys to get the party started. 

Renowned for its Chicken Sandwich that ‘broke the internet’, Popeyes® gave city centre shoppers, workers and passers-by the chance to win one of a thousand free chicken sandwiches as it brought the spirit of New Orleans to Argyll Street ahead of the highly anticipated new Barrhead restaurant opening.

Popeyes® UK has announced the launch time of its new Barrhead Drive-Thru restaurant as 11am on Monday 18th September 2023 with huge giveaways up for grabs.  The first three people in both the drive-thru and dine in queue on opening day will win free Chicken Sandwiches for a year. Additionally, the first 25 vehicles through the drive-thru and the first 25 pedestrians in the dine in queue will also be rewarded with a free Chicken Sandwich and exclusive drive-thru merch.

Popeyes saw its most successful opening to-date out of 4,000 restaurants globally when it opened the first UK drive-thru in Rotherham in May.
