Popeyes Mighty Good Fried Chicken was first opened in Arabi, a suburb of New Orleans in June 1972 as “Chicken on the Run”.¬† It was owned by Al Copeland. ¬† As the company’s official history states, they sold “traditional mild fried chicken [but] business was slow, and the chicken team realized they’d have to sell a spicier alternative to their standard chicken recipe if they wanted to impress flavor-seeking New Orleanians.¬† Copeland started franchising his restaurant in 1976 and over the next ten years added approximately five hundred outlets.
