MIAMI — Popeyes has announced a new agreement with JK Capital, which will facilitate significant growth for the brand in Mexico.
This partnership builds on the brand’s global expansion goals and is set to bring hundreds of new locations to Mexico in the coming years. Currently, Popeyes’ presence within Mexico is limited to the city of Guadalajara.
“Our team has been working diligently to bring these additional Popeyes locations to Mexico and I am confident that our brand is positioned for success in the country for many years to come,” says Manuel Rodrigues, general manager of Popeyes, Latin America & Caribbean. “We’re looking forward to launching the first of our new restaurants in Mexico City later this year.”
Popeyes has committed to working with local purveyors and producers within the country as it grows its presence.
“This is a historic moment for the Popeyes brand. This announcement highlights our commitment to bringing our famous Louisiana-style chicken to guests all over the world, specifically Mexico, which is one of the most vibrant QSR markets today,” says Sami Siddiqui, president of Popeyes, Americas.
