Man Killed In Fight Over Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich

Just imagine getting stabbing and killed over a Popeye's chicken sandwich…

One day after the sandwich finally returned to the menu after its surprise-hit status prompted Popeye's to sell out of them faster than they could serve them, leading to all sorts of criticisms that Popeye's failed to adequately manage the sandwich's rollout with appropriate staffing increases etc., a man stabbed and killed another in a fight at a Popeye's in Prince George's County, Maryland, just outside of Washington. 

According to the New York Post, the fight began around 7 pm Monday night, and the police found the victim in the parking lot when they arrived. He died at a nearby hospital. The names of those involved haven't been released, and little information has been offered aside from this: two men were in line to order a chicken sandwich, when there was a dispute about who got there first, resulting in one of the men pulling out a knife, and killing the other.

In a stroke of marketing genius, Popeye's reintroduced the sandwich on Sunday, drawing attention to the fact that Chick-fil-A is closed on Sunday, and therefore inferior to Popeye's. Management at Restaurant Brands International, Popeye's parent company, hope the sandwich will help Popeye's compete with KFC, Wendy's and other fast-food chains. Even with its abbreviated run, the sandwich helped Popeye's record one of its best quarters in two decades, with comparable sales up 9.7%, according to Bloomberg.

But while supply chain issues are something the company has been doing its best to prepare for, outbreaks of violence probably took the company by surprise.
