Popeyes Celebrates its 300th Location in Canada

Earlier this year, Popeye’s celebrated the opening of its 300th restaurant in Canada, marking a milestone in the continuation of the brand’s rapid expansion across Canada. Popeyes opened its first Canadian location in Toronto in 1984 and has cultivated immense popularity since then.

Popeyes offers guests fried chicken and southern sides with bold Cajun flavors and seasonings that mimic the delicious homemade food you would find in a Louisiana kitchen. Around the world, the brand continues to expand its footprint with a total of over 3,000 restaurants across the U.S. & Canada.

Popeyes demand in Canada is so high that earlier this year, with their first restaurant opening in Nova Scotia, the drive through line was over a kilometre long at one point, backing up onto the highway.


“Canadians love the authentic Louisiana flavours and culinary mastery that Popeyes provides, and demand for our product has led to the opening of many new restaurants across the country,” said Rob Manuel, General Manager of Popeyes Canada. “As we celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary year, we’re excited to commemorate this growth milestone and bring Popeyes closer to all of our fans.”

As a celebration of the milestone 300th Canadian location, Popeyes offered a 300 piece chicken nugget meal for one weekend only in October 2022 at 4 locations across Canada in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Toronto, and Coquitlam.
