Popeyes makes India debut with Bangalore restaurant

The outlet’s menu in India features the chain’s signature chicken sandwich but also includes some Indian-inspired innovations.

Popeyes has officially debuted in India, opening a restaurant in Bangalore through its master franchisee Jubilant Foodworks Limited.

Located in the city's hot spot of Koramangala, the outlet’s menu features the chain’s signature chicken sandwich but also includes some Indian-inspired innovations. Popeyes also introduced vegetarian recipes that are cooked and served from a separate kitchen counter in identifiably different packaging. 

“This milestone furthers our commitment to open hundreds of restaurants across India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan in the coming years and builds on our track record of working with best-in-class operators to reach more guests around the world,” said David Shear, president of RBI International, the parent company of Popeyes. 

Popeyes previously announced agreements to enter South Korea, France, and Romania. Other international expansions over the past years include Spain, Brazil, China, Switzerland, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Mexico, United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia.
