Popeyes VS. Chick-Fil-A

Popeyes VS. Chick-Fil-A

Carter De Los Santos, staff writer

Some people are fast food fans, some people are not fast food fans, and some people cannot seem to decide on which chicken sandwich is better. 


When Popeye’s Chicken Revealed that they were going to serve chicken sandwiches that are strikingly similar to Chick-Fil-A’s chicken sandwich, people went nuts. By the time the sandwich made its debut, the fast food company had already sold 1000 sandwiches. 


A week later, Chick-Fil-A made a tweet about how “Bun+Chicken+Pickles= All the (heart) for the original” as the tweet goes. “…Y’all good?” Popeye’s replied on Twitter. This supposedly started an all out war between the fast food restaurants on which chicken sandwich is superior. 

Inevitability, fast food fans ended up joining the debate and it became an absolute mess from all sides. Some news sites have added indirect fuel to a flame that no one takes seriously. As if it could not get any more hilarious, Wendys decides to give both of them there two sense on the whole “war”. “Y’all out here fighting about which of these fools has the second-best chicken sandwich,” said Wendy’s in a tweet.


The whole feud between fast food chain restaurants (I hope) is all fun and games. Sure, this all may be a publicity stunt, but I’ve got to admit, this was really good marketing. It got everyone talking, more people bought their product and a lot of the news companies that reported the whole debacle gave them more publicity. All I have to say is that it was pretty clever.
