Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits will once again offer consumers an opportunity to "spice up" their traditional Thanksgiving meal with the purchase of a Cajun Fried Turkey from participating Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits restaurants.

Preparing turkeys in this traditional southern Louisiana fashion is gaining popularity throughout the U.S. as an alternative way of serving customary Thanksgiving fare. Popeyes steps in this season to save families time and worry by preparing the main dish."We hear from our customers every year that they not only enjoy the taste of the Cajun Fried Turkey, but also the fact that it requires less time in the kitchen," Billy Jacob, Executive Chef for Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits, said. "The Popeyes Cajun Fried Turkey takes the guess work out of preparing a great Thanksgiving meal."

The Popeyes Cajun Fried Turkey product is a whole 10-12 pound bird seasoned with a variety of Cajun spices.

Cajun Fried Turkeys will be available at participating Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits locations beginning November 15, 1999, and will be available through the end of the year. Customers are asked to place their order five days

in advance of the requested pick-up date at their local Popeyes restaurant.

Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits, the world's second-largest chicken chain in terms of sales, is a division of AFC Enterprises and operates the Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits, Cajun Kitchen and Cajun Cafe concepts. Founded in 1972, Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits today has more than 1,350 locations in 41 states and 20 countries worldwide and achieved 1998 system-wide sales in excess of $982 million.
