Chicken fans in the Glasgow area and beyond will be able to experience Popeyes® world-famous shatter crunch for themselves once they get their hands on the mouth-watering menu. Popeyes® brings the flavour of Louisiana to the menu, with its signature 12-hour marinated chicken, plus original Southern biscuits and gravy.

What’s more, Popeyes® will also be serving its brand-new breakfast menu, including the Big Breakfast Roll (a sausage patty, egg, streaky bacon, and American cheese in a soft bun), a variety of sausage, bacon, egg and cheese muffins, Cajun hash browns, and its famous Louisiana buttermilk biscuits served with cinnamon sugar or Nutella®.

Tom Crowley, CEO at Popeyes® UK, said: “We are thrilled to announce that Popeyes will be opening in Scotland for the first time later this year. Opening restaurants in Scotland has been key for us since we first landed in the UK, and we’re looking forward to opening across the country, starting with a drive thru in Barrhead. Our recent openings have been some of the biggest to date, not just in the UK but for Popeyes globally, and we are confident that our launch in Scotland will prove just as popular.”

The new restaurant will be located within Barrhead’s new retail park, located on Glasgow Road, with customers able to order via the drive thru lane, online for kerbside collection, or inside the restaurant. Kerbside parking bays will be available for those who order online and collect, and the new restaurant will seat 56 people for dine in, with 16 seats outside.
