Race you there and be warned, we fight dirty.

Popeyes is once again set to give away dozens of free chicken sandwiches to celebrate the opening of their latest location and the second here in Greater Manchester later this week.

The announcement that another Manc Popeyes was set to pop up just a few months on from their flagship restaurant in Piccadilly One came just this past March and people are starting to get super excited about this newest edition – and for good reason.

Not only it is another place for people to get their hands on the legendary Louisiana fried chicken but it’s also set to be a drive-thru – just their sixth anywhere in the UK, in fact.

Better still, those looking to get their hands on a freebie this Friday can do so from their car too.

Just as with their first opening back in October, there are set to be huge queues for the Popeyes on Bury New Road as fans get ready to be among the first line as the fast food franchise is giving away 25 of their iconic fried chicken sandwiches for absolutely free.


And that goes for those queuing up in their cars too, as they can also get their hands on those beloved spiced sarnies by being among the first to get in the drive-thru. Be warned though, the last one stretched for a whopping 16 hours.

To top it all off, the first three of those to make it to the counter/pay window will be given free fried chicken for a whole year. Yes, seriously.


We were there when lucky Manc Hashim was the very first in line at the Piccadilly opening and walked away with the ultimate prize. We’ve never been more jealous in our lives.

There’ll also be lots of Popeyes merch up for grabs which has become a bit of a cult favourite amongst merch collectors. We’re not exactly sure why but people got nuts for those baseball caps.

The all-new American chicken restaurant will not only be their second in the region but mark the brand’s 11th opening so far this year and 47th since landing in the UK back in November 2021.


Popeyes’ Manchester drive-thru opens on 288-292 Bury New Road at 11am on Friday, 26 April, so if you want to be in with a chance you better be quick. You can find the full terms and conditions HERE.

We recently went back to their exciting city centre site for an episode of our Takeaway Champions and it didn’t disappoint. Safe to say we’re pretty buzzing we’ll soon be able to grab it on the go.
