Popeyes same-store sales soar more than 40%

But sister brands Tim Hortons and Burger King are both down, even as the chains’ sales improve.


Burger King and Popeyes will start reopening dining rooms

So will Tim Hortons as parent company Restaurant Brands International moves into the next phase of reopening.

Same-store sales rose 29% in the U.S. last quarter despite the coronavirus, and are already back to precrisis levels.

From date night dinners to family meals and sweets, restaurants innovate to lure customers.

The chain’s 38% same-store sales growth was one of the strongest numbers in industry history, proving the chicken sandwich was a black swan event, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The company’s chicken sandwich was one of the best new-product introductions in fast-food history.

The success of the product could help the chain break into areas it might have not considered before, franchisee Carrols says.

The company is promoting its new national delivery partnership with DoorDash this week with a sandwich giveaway.

Franchisee Carrols Restaurant Group said its Popeyes same-store sales were up more than 21% last quarter, while Burger King underperformed.
