What’s more, Popeyes will also be serving its brand-new breakfast menu, including the Big Breakfast Roll (a sausage patty, egg, streaky bacon, and American cheese in a soft bun), a variety of sausage, bacon, egg and cheese muffins, cajun hash browns, and its famous Louisiana buttermilk biscuits served with cinnamon sugar or Nutella.
Tom Crowley, CEO at Popeyes UK, said: “We are thrilled to announce that a new Popeyes restaurant will be opening in Manchester later this year. The city has been a key location for us since we first landed in the UK, and we’re looking forward to bringing the spirit of New Orleans to the iconic Piccadilly Gardens. Our most recent openings have been some of the biggest to date, not just in the UK but for Popeyes globally. After many requests for a Popeyes UK in Manchester, we are confident that the new restaurant will be just as popular and can’t wait to announce our opening week plans soon.”
