Popeyes Chicken is officially in Calgary!

Calgarians longing for a box of Popeye's Chicken used to have to travel south of the border to get their fried chicken fix - things are changing on December 21st.


Three words, Calgary: Three piece, spicy. These are words I only had the pleasure of saying on trips to the U.S – until now.

On Wednesday, Dec. 21, America’s favorite fried chicken mainstay Popeye’s Chicken is opening their first Calgary franchise! Popeyes Chicken is famous for more than fried chicken; beans, biscuits, you name it.

The new location is located at 3909 17th Avenue SE – working on past experiences like the Panda Express or Carl’s Jr. grand openings, it’s likely that you’ll see long wait times today so make sure to plan accordingly!
