US-based fast food restaurant chain Popeyes has partnered with Uber Eats to launch its delivery service in select areas in the country.

The company has taken this decision following customer requests for food delivery on social media platform Twitter.

Customers can order menu items including Bonafide chicken, hot biscuits, red beans and rice through Uber Eats mobile app or on ubereats.com.

The service is currently available New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Miami and Washington D.C.

Popeyes North America president Chad Crawford said: “As seen on social media over the years, we’ve tried to come to the rescue of our loyal guests, celebrities, athletes, chefs, and others who have made their cravings for Popeyes known.

“Now with Uber Eats, we can provide the same doorstep delivery service to all of them. We’re excited to give our guests the great taste they love with the added convenience of delivery.”

Headquartered in New Orleans, Popeyes currently operates more than 2,900 chicken quick service restaurants in the US and across the world.

Menu items offered by the restaurant chain include spicy chicken, chicken tenders, fried shrimp, and other regional items.

Uber Eats business development global head Liz Meyerdirk said: “Popeyes has a rich history of serving up delicious fried chicken and classic signature sides and we’re excited to make it even easier for our users to get the food that fits their busy lives, delivered at Uber speed.”
