MANILA, Philippines — Popeyes is back and has just unveiled its new global restaurant in the country. Popeyes Arcovia City in Pasig is the first branch in the country since the global food chain closed its last branches in Manila in 2007.

The unveiling of the hip and more vibrant restaurant also launched the much-anticipated offerings biscuits, Cajun Fries and the world-famous Popeyes fried chicken. The signature fried chicken is packed with distinct Cajun-inspired flavors from Louisiana, USA.

“In the US, Hollywood stars and celebrity chefs constantly rave about Popeyes and we’re thrilled to bring this world-famous brand to the Philippines. Aside from being the first restaurant to feature the new global look of Popeyes, we take pride in introducing new menu items that will eventually be rolled out in other Popeyes restaurants worldwide,” shared Lowell Yu, chairman of Kuya J Group, the parent company of Popeyes in the Philippines.

Also present during the event were Kuya J Group chief finance officer Francis Reyes, and celebrity guests Matteo Guidicelli, JM Rodriguez, Jason Abalos, Kate Valdez, Iza Calzado and Pops Fernandez.

Popeyes will be opening 20 more branches by the end of the year.
