Popeyes just officially launched its famous chicken sandwich in Canada

After months of delays due to the pandemic, Popeyes is finally bringing their famous chicken sandwich to Canada, but people in some parts of the country will have to wait a little while longer to find out what all the hype is about. 

While the original plan was to pilot the sandwich in parts of Ontario, the company instead decided to redirect the launch to restaurants in Alberta, where the reopening process is a little further along. 

If the initial trial is a success, Popeyes will roll the menu item out to restaurants across the rest of the country over the coming months. 

The chicken sandwich has been hugely popular with customers in the United States, where fried chicken fans waited in line for hours when it launched last year. 

From Wednesday, June 17, the sandwich will be available in eight restaurants across Edmonton, as well as four other locations in Red Deer, Grande Prairie, Lloydminster and Fort Saskatchewan.

The classic chicken sandwich will sell for $6.49, while a deluxe version featuring lettuce and tomato will cost $6.99.

London and Windsor will be the next places to have a taste, followed by Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and B.C. in the fall.

The announcement will come as welcome news to chicken lovers in Canada who have been eager to try the sandwich for some time. 

Some major chicken enthusiasts have even contemplated crossing the boarder to give it a try.

Now that it's finally here, some people are claiming that life is "about to get better" for Canadians – but most of us will have to wait a little while longer to find out how true that is!
