Jubilant Foodworks Limited (JFL), India’s leading food services player, has launched the iconic US Fried Chicken brand Popeyes® in India.

Located at Koramangala in Bengaluru, Popeyes is known for its spicy New Orleans style fried chicken & Chicken Sandwich, aims to delight Indian guests with the bold and delicious flavours of its Louisiana-style chicken.


“We are excited to introduce the Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen brand to chicken-loving Indian consumers. We are confident that Popeyes® will not only delight guests but also strategically complement our portfolio and fortify JFL’s leadership in the QSR domain,” shared Shyam S. Bhartia, Chairman and Hari S. Bhartia, Co-Chairman, Jubilant Foodworks Limited.


Founded in Louisiana in 1972, it is America’s one of the most popular and fastest growing Chicken brands.

The success of Popeyes® lies in its traditional and unique technique of hand breading, battering, and marinating its fresh chicken for 12 hours in bold Cajun seasonings. The Cajun seasoning has a blend of cayenne pepper, garlic, onion, black pepper, celery and white pepper and offers an unbeatably bold and flavourful culinary experience.

The Popeyes® India menu will feature the signature Cajun flavoured, world-famous Chicken Sandwich, which took the internet by storm in August 2019 in the United States.


Complementing the menu is Popeyes® signature Chicken in Classic and Spicy flavours. The Indian menu will also feature an array of vegetarian options. It will also have Rice Bowls and Wraps as part of the wholesome meal options to ensure all guests enjoy the Popeyes® Cajun experience.

The entire India menu has no MSG, and the chicken is antibiotic-free.

“At JFL, we are committed to bringing the best in taste and quality from across the globe to excite the discerning Indian taste buds. The unique, delicious, and wholesome Cajun flavours of Popeyes® are certain to appeal to the Indian audience,” added Pratik Pota, CEO and Wholetime Director, Jubilant Foodworks Limited (JFL).

Popeyes will also be opening stores in New BEL Road and Kammanahalli.

The brand will have its own App (Android and iOS) and Mobile Website (www.popeyes.in) allowing customers to experience the food at home as well.


In order to ensure a smooth and seamless Delivery experience, JFL has built its own in-house Delivery fleet with 100% use of E-Bikes, enabling a zero-emission Delivery of the Popeyes® experience.

“We are thrilled to bring Popeyes® to India.  This new country entry illustrates our commitment to serving more guests around the world with our signature blend of spices and flavours,” added David Shear, President RBI International, parent company of Popeyes®.
