It was announced in February of this year that the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich that created a viral sensation in the US will launch in Canada by September of 2020.
It now seems that Edmontonians and Albertans in some other locations need not wait that long.
Popeyes is doing a test launch and Popeyes famous Chicken Sandwich will be available at all Edmonton locations from Wednesday, June 17th.
It will also be available at Red Deer, Grand Prairie, Lloydminster and Fort Saskatchewan at a date this month.
