    Not sure if you can really call this a tale of survival.

    Eathan Edwards You said that it's nothing to get ahold of 50,000 chicken breasts. Is Popeye's hitting pause to keep their employees from quitting? Are they out of buns?

    I have absolutely no idea - they use massive suppliers like Columbia and Sysco. There is virtually no scenario where they have a chicken shortage from their supplier barring some mass chicken exodus. They just aren't ordering the correct amounts to satisfy demand because the managers don't want to miss their COG indexes.

    How is this stanning? Their spicy is >>>>>>>> their mild. They would improve the sandwich.

    It could be due to the size of the chicken breast they are using. It's an XXXL so maybe Tyson didn't have enough laying around?

    There was a huge issue a year or two ago with KFC and it was entirely the fault of their logistics department because of a DHL deal or something - there was literally a huge surplus of chicken they just weren't able to get it delivered effectively.

    Maybe, probably.

    They aren't willingly changing something that's been this successful. Maybe they offer an extra spicy in the future but they aren't fucking with it right now.

    They need correct amount of buns and sauce, not to mention more people meant more sides, etc. They are just going to properly re-stock every store and then re-market. The Pop's by me said 9/5.

    It's great brand synergy that Popeye's corporate is just as fucking unorganized as each and every one of their stores.

    They don’t have the infrastructure in place in terms of product ordering, available manpower, and adequate training systems to supply the demand.

    And the higher ups, instead of struggling upstream to make profit, decided to pull the plug. Weird call.
