Popeyes Brings Best of Both Worlds with Cajun Surf & Turf

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, a division of AFC Enterprises Inc., introduces its Cajun Surf & Turf promotion. Cajun Surf & Turf features four Butterfly Shrimp, two Handcrafted Tenders, one regular side, Biscuit, and two Signature Dipping Sauces for only $4.99. In honor of this Louisiana-inspired union, Popeyes is pairing fans with their friends and family to share in all good things with The Big Cajun Get Together Sweepstakes.

Popeyes Butterfly Shrimp is slow-marinated in a blend of Louisiana seasonings, battered and fried up crispy. Popeyes Handcrafted Tenders are always 100 percent breast meat, never formed or pressed, marinated in Louisiana seasonings, hand battered and breaded, then fried up fresh at Popeyes.
 
“People are already seeking out Popeyes to cater their gatherings because we do Cajun flavor better than anyone can; so we’re going one giant step further by actually throwing a completely catered Big Cajun Get Together for one lucky set of friends and family!” says Hector Munoz, vice president of marketing. “We know that people truly want to stay close to their friends and family. It’s the reason social media exists. So to use it to physically bring people together is something that anyone would inherently want to participate in. The prize is your own group of friends, family, and loved ones, united to share in laughter and good food. And that’s exactly what Popeyes is all about.”
 
Fans of Popeyes can sign up online and ask as many of their Facebook friends as possible to help them win The Big Cajun Get Together! The more friends that join their party, the more chances they have at winning the Grand Prize. Five lucky friends of the winning party could also win $50 worth of free Popeyes. Five first prizes worth $100 each of free Popeyes will also be drawn as part of the sweepstakes. If that’s not enough, just for signing up or joining a friend’s party, everyone will receive a Popeyes coupon available only to sweepstakes participants.
