Manila, Philippines – Filipinos will soon get to take a bite of one of the most popular fried chicken brands in North America – Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen or just Popeyes. Opening their first restaurant in the country in the first quarter of 2019, the fried chicken brand is set on making the quick service restaurant industry more exciting for consumers.
Popeyes will be brought to the country by the same team behind the highly successful Kuya J’s Restaurant. Coca-Cola is the official beverage provider of Popeyes in the Philippines.
“It is a great privilege for Coca-Cola to be partnering with Popeyes as they open their restaurant in the Philippines. Together with the wide range of beverage options from Coca-Cola, we will be able to make every bite at Popeyes more memorable and exciting for Filipinos,” said Winn Everhart, President and General Manager of Coca-Cola Philippines.
Globally, Popeyes is owned by Restaurant Brand International, alongside Tim Hortons and Burger King. The Philippines is the first market wherein all three brands have partnered with Coca-Cola for beverages.
