A popular American fast food chain that fans are calling ’10/10′ and ‘better than McDonald’s’ is set to open 30 new restaurants in the UK.

Famous for it’s mouth-watering Louisiana fried chicken, Popeyes, which was founded in New Orleans in 1972, opened it’s first British branch in Stratford in 2021.

Since then, more restaurants have popped up around the country in areas such as Oxford, Nottingham and Gateshead, as the brand has expanded nationwide.

There are currently 38 locations, which is set to nearly double as 30 more branches are soon to be opening their doors to UK customers – including restaurants, delivery kitchens and drive-thrus.

The brand announced the move earlier this week on their social media channels, where they wrote: ‘Y’all ready for more heat?

‘Get ready for over 30 new openings including new restaurants in Manchester and Nottingham, our first delivery launch in Birmingham and our next London opening’.

The company posted a map which highlights where some of the locations will be, though not all of them have been announced yet.

Among the list of locations are Glasgow, Birmingham, Swansea and Manchester, with the Birmingham store also promising a delivery kitchen.

Tom Byng, chief development officer at Popeyes, told Metro: ‘We’re excited to be giving even more people their first taste of New Orleans as we double our estate in 2024.

‘We’re particularly proud of our geographical spread of expansion, including our first ever travel hub restaurant in Waterloo station, which will be fuelling hungry travellers with great food and a dose of the famous New Orleans spirit.’

Customers who have already had the chance to try what the fast food chain has to offer have taken to X, formerly Twitter, to reveal what they thought.

One fan claims: ‘Popeyes is actually 10/10 best fast food chain I’ve had in the UK’.

Another chimed in with: ‘Popeyes fries are better than McDonald’s fries’.

Meanwhile a third and fourth added: ‘Popeyes is better than McDonald’s’ and ‘that Popeyes was 10/10’ 

One foodie ranked Popeyes, Wendys and McDonalds against each other, placing Popeyes at number one.

Another Briton announced: ‘Need to go back to @PopeyesUK soon’.

Someone else added that they’ve had Popeyes sweet and sour wings three times in the past week, revealing they’re ‘so obsessed’.

After the announcement, some fans still want more locations and have tweeted the company insisting they expand into more areas. 

‘Come to Wrexham!’ one foodie penned, meanwhile another added, ‘You need to cover West Yorkshire!’

The chicken restaurant is is the latest American fast food giant to expand its British base of operations, after Wendy’s, Taco Bell and Wingstop all entered the UK market in recent years.

The expansion also comes comes five years after Popeyes launched its famous chicken sandwich, a menu item that quickly went viral and sold out in stores across America.

It saw crafty entrepreneurs selling the sandwiches for five times the price just outside the store, after the new dish sold out nationwide just over two weeks after it launched. 

Three men appeared to be trying to flog the hugely popular burger for $20 each outside the restaurant, in an unknown location – touting the goods from a fold-up table.
