Popeyes Picks 3 Finalists in Review

Three shops have reached the final round in Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits’ $20 million review, sources said. They are IPG’s Avrett Free Ginsberg in New York, Austin Kelley in Atlanta, and independent Cramer-Krasselt in Chicago, said sources. Popeyes parted with the incumbent, IPG’s Hill, Holliday, Connors, Cosmopulos in New York, in June . Consultant Sheri Treco-Jones of Agency ID in Atlanta is handling the search; neither she nor the client could be reached. Shop execs could not be reached or declined comment. A decision is expected by month’s end.
