Popeyes says they’re going to run out of chicken sandwiches in stores across the country this week … even though they thought they had enough to keep selling them through September.
The chicken joint shared the gut-wrenching news Tuesday afternoon … telling us they tried to forecast demand through the end of next month, but people’s hunger proved too much.
It’s pretty crazy … Popeyes just started selling the sandos earlier this month, igniting an all-out chicken war with Chick-Fil-A, and they promise they’re busting their ass to make sure the item is back in stores ASAP.
Lines at Popeyes have been crazy … and some people even put the sandwiches on Ebay … and in the craze, Popeye’s apparently managed to run out of fried chicken, pickles, sauce and bread.
The good news … Popeyes says the sandwich won’t be gone for good, and they’ve got an app to let you know when it’ll be back in stores.
