After Popeyes added a crispy chicken sandwich to their fast-fast menu, the hierarchy of chicken sandwiches in America was rattled, and the supremacy of Chick-fil-A and others was threatened.

The Popeye’s restaurant chain is reportedly bringing back its popular chicken sandwich.

Bloomberg reports that about 150 Popeye’s locations will offer the item beginning in early November.

The item became a huge hit, and cause a ‘chicken war‘ when it debuted in August.

One man even sued the company after they ran out of the sandwich.

So to prepare — Bloomberg reports the restaurants are hiring an additional 400 employees.
