Popeyes asks customers to bring their own bun for chicken sandwiches

A chicken sandwich is seen at a Popeyes, Thursday, Aug. 22, 2019, in Kyle, Texas. After Popeyes added a crispy chicken sandwich to their fast-fast menu, the hierarchy of chicken sandwiches in America was rattled, and the supremacy of Chick-fil-A and others was threatened.

Popeyes has brought a new meaning to BYOB: Bring your own bun.

The chicken restaurant has come up with a temporary fix to the fact its popular sandwich has been sold out at many locations by telling customers to supply their own bread.

“Due to the extraordinary demand, the sandwich sold out two weeks after it was introduced nationwide,” Popeyes said Thursday in a statement. “Popeyes is working to get the sandwich back in restaurants soon. In the meantime, they’re offering guests a way to ease their sorrows and cravings. Introducing BYOB: Bring Your Own Bun.”

Alas, this is not the exact sandwich. The chain suggests to modify the recipe.

“Popeyes still has the best fried chicken in the game, so bring your own bun, order 3-piece tenders and voilà! You can make your own sandwich,” the company says.

But some customers aren’t digging the recommendation.

“Popeyes asking you to assemble a chicken sandwich at home like IKEA furniture, tweeted Angela Davis or @The Kitchenista. “Wow. Chick Fil A would never.”
