Popeyes knows that in Hawaii, good food brings people together, and great food takes time. That’s why Popeyes slow marinates its chicken to give it a savory, Cajun crunch. Right now, you can get nine pieces of this famous fried chicken (leg and thigh or tenders), two large signature sides and four buttery biscuits for just $28. This nine-piece family meal offer expires Jan. 31.
While Popeyes is a national chain, Popeyes Hawaii is a locally owned family business. Kal Uezu had a chance to try Popeyes shortly after the company opened and fell in love with the chicken. He felt the people of Hawaii would also love Popeyes’ Cajun flavors, so he became one of the first franchisees in the entire chain. He opened the first Popeyes Hawaii in 1980 on Keeaumoku Street.
Popeyes is famous for its handcrafted chicken that’s seasoned and marinated for 12 hours, hand battered and cooked fresh. Featuring just the right amount of crunch, the tender, juicy chicken pairs perfectly with buttery biscuits, and popular sides like mashed potatoes and coleslaw. The chicken sandwich continues to be a favorite among customers, Popeyes Hawaii emphasizes.
