Fried chicken chain Popeyes continues expansion with new South Yorkshire venue

Popeyes UK has announced the launch of its new Barnsley Drive-Thru restaurant on Friday September 29.

The all new American fried chicken restaurant will be located at The Peel Centre in Barnsley and will mark the brand’s 11th opening in 2023, and the 30th opening since landing in the UK in November 2021.

Guests looking to visit on launch day are advised to get down quickly to beat the “round-the-block” queues which have become synonymous with Popeyes UK restaurant launches, with diners all over the country having previously queued from as early as 10pm the night before.

Popeyes saw its busiest launch globally for the first UK Drive-Thru in Rotherham, with customers queuing from 4am to get their hands on the famous Louisiana Chicken Sandwich, and the brand has now announced its second restaurant in Yorkshire will follow on September 29.

Chicken fans in Barnsley will get to experience Popeyes world-famous ‘shatter crunch’ for themselves once they get their hands on the menu available at the Drive-Thru, including the “iconic” Popeyes Chicken Sandwich and original Southern biscuits and gravy.

Popeyes will also be serving up a brand-new breakfast menu, including the Big Breakfast Rolls (A sausage patty, egg, streaky bacon, and American cheese in a soft bun), a variety of breakfast muffins, cajun hash browns and their famous Louisiana buttermilk biscuits served with cinnamon sugar or Nutella.

Plans for the new site include 88 seats indoors and 24 outside, a dual-ordering lane to reduce expected vehicle queues including two waiting bays, kerbside collection from six specifically designated bays when you order online via the Popeyes website and car park including three DDA parking spots for customers who would like to eat inside the restaurant.
