Popeyes® UK to Open New Manchester Restaurant, Bringing a Taste of New Orleans to Manchester Piccadilly Gardens
Popeyes® UK is set to open its 34th restaurant in the UK on October 26th, 2023, in Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester. The highly anticipated launch promises a chance to win their famous Chicken Sandwich, but eager customers are advised to arrive early to avoid the expected round-the-block queues, following the brand’s successful openings across the country.

Popeyes® UK is set to pull out all the stops to showcase its Southern hospitality as it brings a taste of New Orleans to Manchester. Ahead of the launch, chicken fans can enter for the chance of winning a famous Chicken Sandwich at the opening of the new venue by signing up at popeyesuk.com/restaurants/manchester-piccadilly.


Guests looking to visit on launch day are advised to get down quickly to beat the round-the-block queues which have become synonymous with Popeyes® UK restaurant launches, with diners all over the country having previously queued from as early as 7pm the night before.


Customers queued for 16 hours to get their hands on the famous Louisiana Chicken Sandwich at the most recent opening in Cardiff Bay.  Popeyes saw one of the most successful openings to-date out of 4,000 restaurants globally when it opened the first UK drive-thru in Rotherham in May, and the brand predicts that the launch of the first restaurant in Manchester will follow suit on 26th October.


Chicken fans in Manchester will get to experience Popeyes® world-famous ‘shatter crunch’ for themselves once they get their hands on the mouth-watering menu available at the store, including the iconic Popeyes® Chicken Sandwich and original Southern biscuits and gravy. Popeyes® will also be serving up a brand-new breakfast menu, including the Big Breakfast Rolls [A sausage patty, egg, streaky bacon, and American cheese in a soft bun], a variety of breakfast muffins, cajun hash browns and their famous Louisiana buttermilk biscuits served with cinnamon sugar or Nutella®.


The new Manchester restaurant will be located at 1 Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester M1 1RG and will seat up to 67 people for dine in, with 32 seats outside, with takeaway will also available.
