1. How do KFC and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen differ?
Kentucky Fried Chicken and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen are independent businesses in the fried-chicken fast food industry. According to the KFC About Us page, the company is the leading fried chicken restaurant chain that has over 21,000 outlets worldwide.
“KFC Corporation, based in Louisville, Kentucky, is one of the few brands in America that can boast a rich, decades-long history of success and innovation. It all started with one cook who created a soon-to-be world-famous recipe more than 70 years ago, a list of secret herbs and spices scratched out on the back of the door to his kitchen.
That cook was Colonel Harland Sanders, of course, and now KFC is the world’s most popular chicken restaurant chain, specializing in that same Original Recipe® along with Extra Crispy™ chicken, home-style sides and buttermilk biscuits. There are over 21,000 KFC outlets in more than 130 countries and territories around the world.”
Popeyes, on the other hand, is the second largest fried chicken chain restaurant after KFC Corporation with about 2,700 outlets worldwide.
“Founded in New Orleans in 1972, Popeyes® has more than 40 years of history and culinary tradition. Popeyes distinguishes itself with a unique New Orleans style menu featuring spicy chicken, chicken tenders, fried shrimp and other regional items. The chain’s passion for its Louisiana heritage and flavorful authentic food has allowed Popeyes to become one of the world’s largest quick service restaurant chicken concepts with over 2,600 restaurants in the U.S. and around the world.”
In regards to the menu, both KFC and Popeyes offer fried chicken, chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, gravy, coleslaw, and biscuits, sauces, beverages, desserts, sauces, and side dishes. While Kentucky Fried Chicken offers burgers, Popeyes Lousiana Kitchen offers wraps and sandwiches. Also, Popeyes offers seafood alongside chicken while KFC specializes exclusively on chicken.
