Popeyesgate: Restaurant Caught Serving Popeye's

posted by Mary Booth -

How would you feel if you found out the restaurant where you were eating a chicken sandwich GOT that chicken from Popeyes?

Wait. What?

Yep.  The firestorm started when a customer of Sweet Dixie Kitchen in Long Beach, California noticed employees bringing in boxes of Popeye's chicken.  

He thought they were bringing in THEIR lunch, not HIS.  Then he realized that's what they were serving. 

And charging premium prices. 

He gave the restaurant a 1 Star review on Yelp and explained why.  A lot of others followed suit.

The owner's response?  

"We PROUDLY SERVE Popeyes spicy tenders- the best fried chicken anywhere and from New Orleans."

They also serve other items sourced elsewhere.  

Unethical? That's just part of the debate.  What about health issues?  

Here's what the owner had to say about that, from Sweet Dixie Kitchen's FB page-- 

The restaurant has embraced the controversy--
