Popeyes Opens 50th Canadian Store

PopeyesLouisiana Kitchen opened its 50th Canadian restaurant on December 8, at 35 Harvard Road, Guelph. This location represents a milestone in the aggressive growth strategy and success of the brand in Canada. 

Popeyes will continue its success in 2011 with a growth plan intensely focused on increasing market presence in Ontario. 2012 will mark the brand expansion beyond Ontario, when Popeyes restaurants will open in Quebec and Alberta. 

"This is a celebratory occasion in Canadian growth," says Todd Sattler, Popeyes International marketing manager. "Our hard work and loyal guests have enabled our rapid expansion—allowing our 50th restaurant to succeed."

"We're at a tipping point where Popeyes will reach quantum growth over the next five years,” says Harpal Kalsi, regional leader of Popeyes Canada. “We have a robust development plan to bring Louisiana Cajun style cooking coast to coast by 2015. I want to thank our franchise partners and their teams for making Popeyes a successful brand in Canada.”
