Popeyes knows you're still sad about its chicken sandwich shortage. That's why it's suggesting a quick fix to ease your chicken sandwich cravings.— CNN (@CNN) September 12, 2019
Introducing BYOB: Bring Your Own Bun.https://t.co/Ypns3T4Tmf
Popeyes has an interesting solution for customers waiting to try their new sold out chicken sandwich: BYOB or bring your own bun and make it your damn self, y’all!
The chain sold out of their new chicken sandwiches last month after igniting the “Chicken Sandwich Wars of 2019” that went viral over social media.
On Thursday, the chain shared a video announcing its new “BYOB” campaign. “It’s basically The Sandwich! Only no mayo. Or pickles. And you bring your own bun...”
Popeyes hopes this marketing ploy will 1. Help customers from forgetting about them and their sandwich and 2. Keep the hype from dying down until their chicken sandwiches are “back in stock.”
Needless to say, not everyone found this funny. Many were not here for this trolling in the comments for the video below.
ONTD, do you bring your own food to fast food chains?
