Deliveroo serves 1,000 Popeyes chicken sandwiches as the American fried chicken brand opens its first restaurant in Chelmsford on June 11

Deliveroo has teamed up with Popeyes® to launch an exclusive “Waiting List” for customers, to help fans skip the highly anticipated “drop” by joining the first-ever fried chicken queue for a “home experience” – including a free Popeyes® chicken sandwich queue. This exclusive drop is inspired by sneaker drops across the country and celebrates the opening of the chain’s first restaurant in Essex earlier this month, which will be closely followed by the opening of Romford in July.

With the popularity of Popeyes® among celebrities like Cardi B & Beyonce, Essex foodies can be expected to wait for their delicious Louisiana chicken once it’s released.

Aisha Jefferson of Deliveroo said: “In celebration of Popeyes®’ expansion of its restaurants across the UK, and partnering exclusively with Deliveroo, we’re giving our chicken-loving customers the chance to beat the queues and try the chicken sandwich that broke the Internet ‘without leaving the front door.

Customers who sign up for the fried chicken queue will have a chance to win a free Deliveroo credit to use at Popeyes® Chicken Sandwich (or any other dish) when the restaurant in Chelmsford and Romford ‘drops’ in July. There is the equivalent of 1,000 free chicken sandwiches.

Popular brand of chicken Popeyes® – which caused quite a stir in the US with the launch of its first chicken sandwich – is set to open across the UK and is already available for delivery, exclusively via Deliveroo. Essex is experiencing a downturn like no other, so don’t miss out!

This new launch follows the successful grand opening of the store in Stratford, which was followed by the launch of several Deliveroo Editions kitchens across London (Whitechapel and Bermondsey).

To join the exclusive waitlist and proceed with the game, customers must head to to enter their details (including the email address associated with their Deliveroo account) and wait for the winners to be announced by mail mail.

Once winning customers are announced, they will need to enter their custom code found in the email confirmation in the app or website. Customers using the app can go to their account and add the unique code to the “Enter promotional code” field. On the website, click Add Code on the checkout page.

Popeyes® is also expanding across the country with restaurants announced in Gateshead, Nottingham, Brighton, Ealing, Oxford and Reading, so customers can sign up for a waiting list to be the first to know about any and all new launches. Sign up to be alerted when there are new job openings in towns and cities across the UK.

Popeyes® first launched in the UK in November 2021, and exclusively on Deliveroo this year. Popeyes is best known for its hand-cranked chicken marinated for 12 hours in a blend of Louisiana herbs and spices inspired by its heritage. In addition to Louisiana’s signature chicken – available as classic or spicy – Popeyes® fans will be delighted to see many of the classics on the American menu – including chicken tenders, hot wings, mac and cheese, and even the Southern savory biscuits and gravy they’re famous for. Cajun broth.

Popeyes Drop runs from June 20 until all codes are redeemed, minimum order, delivery and service fees may apply.
