Most people look forward to Thanksgiving for the food, but no one can deny that a ton of time and preparation goes into the holiday, especially when it comes to the turkey. If you’re looking to have this traditional meat on the table fast without spending hours slaving away over the oven, Popeyes has come to the rescue. For the past couple of years, the fast-food chain has had the brilliant idea of offering its customers a fully cooked turkey that’s ready with just some thawing and reheating!
The Thanksgiving Turkey Delight
For the third year in a row, Popeyes is all set to make people’s lives easier with their tasty Thanksgiving turkeys! The scrumptious turkey is infused with the restaurant’s signature Louisiana-style seasoning.
The bird arrives frozen and thaws out in the fridge in three days, and it takes about two hours to cook it, so it’s a simple and easy alternative to preparing your own turkey.
Ordering the Turkey
The good news is that Popeyes makes it super easy for you to get ahold of one of these special turkeys. You can order it in-store or get it delivered from their online shop, and they’ve been on sale since October 9. If you place your order online, it takes up to one to three days for it to reach you, frozen and ready to be put in the fridge. It’s important to note that not every store is offering turkeys, so make sure to call ahead and check whether your local store is participating!
As for the pricing, the bird can be ordered online at $99, which also includes shipping. However, tax may be applicable according to the situation. For a cheaper option, check out the in-store prices as they’re usually cheaper. One turkey is enough to feed approximately 8-12 people comfortably!
Sides From Popeyes
While the turkey itself is the biggest undertaking of a Thanksgiving meal, the sides can also be quite a handful. For a completely outsourced Thanksgiving, pick up your favorite sides from Popeyes itself.
The restaurant serves some delectable mac n’ cheese and mashed potatoes that you can add to your meal. You can also opt to get dessert, too. Unfortunately for Thanksgiving lovers outside of the United States, their Popeyes stores won’t be selling turkeys. This feature also isn’t available in Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
