SHANGHAI — Popeyes Louisana Kitchen Inc. has announced plans to open more than 1,500 Popeyes restaurants in China over the next 10 years.
“We’re very excited to grow the Popeyes brand in the Chinese market,” says Josh Kobza, COO of Restaurant Brands International (RBI), parent company of Popeyes. “We look forward to bringing our great tasting chicken, biscuits, sides and beautiful new restaurants to our guests in China with our partner, TFI TAB Food Investments (TFI).”
Popeyes is the last of RBI’s three brands — which also include Tim Hortons and Burger King — to enter the Chinese market. The launch of Popeyes’ operations in China is still subject to a regulatory filing.
