Burger King buys Popeye's for 1.8 Billion

posted by Joel Marasigan -

The company that owns #BurgerKing 🍔 and #TimHortons 🍩 just bought #Popeyes 🍗 for $1.8 billion in cash. The deal is a bet by Oakville, Ontario-based Restaurant Brands that it can use its international reach to introduce Popeyes' Louisiana-style fried chicken and buttermilk biscuits to more diners globally.

Restaurant Brands International, the parent company that owns Burger King, announced that they agree to purchase Popeyes for $1.8 billion.

Globally, Popeyes has 2500+ locations while Burger King has over 15,000—you can expect to eat your favorite chicken combo more often OR maybe take bites of your Popcorn Shrimp while chomping down on a Whopper combo!

We’re not asking you to take sides. Jalapeño Chicken Fries, now available at participating restaurants for a limited time.
