Today's video clip: Popeye's franchise doesn't participate in $4.99 promo

I just have one question, is it that serious? I love me some Popeye's chicken, but if they're not participating in the promotion, I'm either going to order something else, or keep it moving. Why make a stink about it? Your thoughts?

Yeah...I seen this video and I'm STILL embarrassed by it. Don't get me wrong. Popeye's Chicken is dope buuut I'm not about to act ignorant over it. Come on, do you know how fat that looks! I would be upset, sure enough. However, I would either buy what I came for or keep the business.

For the record the chicken sandwich and rice & beans are pretty dope!

i have to say i am far from surprised considering when i went at 8pm no less to our local popeyes the parking lot was full, people were walking over from a nearby shopping center, the line for the drive thru went out onto the road which by the way is a main road in my city, and the in store line was out the door of the store.

I live near the Popeyes in Minneapolis and the whole area was a mess. The police had to be called because people were so upset about the chicken. It was all over the news. It's the only Popeye's in the state, so people drove from all over just to take part in the promo. I'd much rather have my KFC grilled.

wow!! that's all i can say. i agree w/ cc, it's just chicken. i can cook that myself at home and it's much healthier. now don't get me wrong, when you're road trippin' to visit your fam and it's getting late and you got about another 2 1/2 hours to go, popeye's is pretty good.

I agree, the situation was ridiculous...HOWEVER...my question is, if it is a national promotion, why didn't the owner participate? What is that all about? It just seems like that is bad business..either way, you are advancing financially.

The right thing to do is to not patronize the store anymore.

^^^ from my understanding, i think the reason why the owner didn't participate was because that particular store is a franchise and i think franchise pretty much do whatever they want. yes, it would've brought them a great selling day, but what can you do? if that was his decision, people should've just respect that and kept it moving. it's just chicken. i would've wasted my time and energy arguing with anyone. that just makes me look like a fool.

The Cheap Chica said...

I'm sorry- i wouldn't have wasted it my time.

They could have just reported it to the corporate office and am sure they would have gotten a free coupon for a meal mailed to them. I do it all the time when I feel I have been abuse by a franchise owner.
