If you haven’t had a chance to try Popeyes’ new chicken sandwich, you’ll likely have to wait.
While there have been reports of locations across the country selling out of the popular new sandwich, now Popeyes says it expects to sell out of its new Chicken Sandwich nationwide by the end of the week.
“The demand for the new Chicken Sandwich in the first few weeks following launch far exceeded our very optimistic expectations,” the chicken chain said in a statement sent to USA TODAY on Tuesday. “In fact, Popeyes aggressively forecasted demand through the end of September and has already sold through that inventory.”
In a tweet Tuesday, Popeyes wrote “Y’all. We love that you love The Sandwich. Unfortunately we’re sold out (for now).”

Popeyes said it is working with its suppliers to bring the sandwich back as soon as possible.
It offered a way to find out when the sandwich will be available again.
“To be among the first to know when the Chicken Sandwich is available, download the Popeyes app in the App Store or Google Play and sign up for push notifications,” Popeyes said in its statement.
