A brand new branch of Popeyes is set to open in Wimbledon this year.

On Saturday (June 22), the fast food franchise opened its fiftieth branch in Glasgow, and the rest of the year it will continue to open more locations.

Stores are set to open in Dartford and Wimbledon as well as Watford, Nottingham Teal and Merry Hill.

The popular brand is home of its famous Louisiana chicken popeyes and first came to the UK from America in 2021.

The brand claims that it has seen massive queues for almost every UK opening.

A Popeyes opened in Croydon in November, 2023, with a grand opening that involved live music, live performers and customers queued from 4.30pm the day before the opening.

Tom Crowley, CEO at Popeyes UK said: "In just 30 months, our remarkable Popeyes UK team has secured a pipeline of 50 top-tier new sites, including our first ever Northern Irish location which opens in Belfast very soon."

"Currently, Popeyes UK is the fastest-growing chicken QSR brand in the UK, with a 125 per cent year-on-year growth from May 2023 to May 2024.

“The sustained demand for Popeyes in the UK is incredible, but not unexpected.

"We've seen overnight queues for almost every opening since our UK launch in 2021, with fried chicken fans turning up to queue over 24 hours before the opening of new Popeyes restaurants.

“We remain committed to our expansion plans and look forward to achieving new milestones in the upcoming years."
