Popeyes has signed an agreement with JK Capital to launch hundreds of new Popeyes restaurants in Mexico in the years to come.

Currently, Popeyes only has a presence in the Mexican city of Guadalajara, where it opened a restaurant earlier this year.

The latest announcement further builds on Popeyes’ global expansion strategy.

Popeyes has more than 3,400 restaurants worldwide.

Popeyes Americas president Sami Siddiqui said: “This is a historic moment for the Popeyes brand. This announcement highlights our commitment to bringing our famous Louisiana-style chicken to guests all over the world, specifically Mexico, which is one of the most vibrant quick-service restaurant markets today.

“Our successful international expansions into Spain, Switzerland, China, Brazil and the Philippines over the past few years reinforced the global appeal of Popeyes and we are confident that our guests in Mexico will similarly love that chicken from Popeyes.”
