OK so in the first video people are pissed because a local Popeye’s franchise in Minnesota (and also the only Popeye’s in the state) wasn’t honoring the company’s advertised 8 pieces of chicken for $4.99. So um, why did the ad run in MN markets? It must have been a national buy…
In the second one people showed up for the same deal but some of the stores ran out of el pollo. That means chicken. And now I’m hungry.
One thing is for sure — people are passionate about their chicken. Wonder how the PR fallout is going.
Apparently like 98% of the franchisees participated and this was the biggest day for the company, ever. So, you take the good with the bad. This is GSD&M’s account.
