So, now that Restaurant Brands International owns Popeyes — or will when the deal closes in April — you'd think fans of the chain would be excited by the possibility of more locations and further brand development. That doesn't appear to the case for a few chicken lovers, however. When people started seeing "Popeyes" and "$1.8" in the same sentence trending all over the internet, it seems quite a few of them jumped to the conclusion that Popeyes was offering some sort of epic one dollar and eighty cent chicken deal. And, when they figured out the truth, many were understandably disappointed.
Still, even those who recognized the real reason why the chicken chain was in the news have responded with some skepticism. It looks like a lot of people really don't trust Burger King with their precious Popeyes' chicken.
