Popeyes Story began in 1972, when Al Copeland opened a quick-service restaurant called " Chicken on the Run". The restaurant served traditional mild fried chicken to the folks in the small new Orlens suburb of Arabi. Unfortunately, business was slow. Copeland realized that he'd have to sell a spicier alternative to his standard chicken recipe if he wanted to impress flavor-seeking New Orleanians.
