*If you haven’t been able to cop one of Popeye’s popular chicken sandwiches you’re almost out of time to do so because the company says they are almost sold out across the nation.
On Tuesday, Popeyes released a statement announcing it will sell out of the highly coveted item come end of the week. But the fast food chain assured customers it’s “working tirelessly” to bring back the savory sandwiches as soon as possible.
“We have seen an extraordinary demand for the new Popeyes Chicken Sandwich following our nationwide launch on August 12. It has been amazing to see our guests share their love for our brand and for the new Chicken Sandwich on social media and beyond, and we are truly humbled and grateful for their support,” Popeyes wrote in a statement. “The demand for the new Chicken Sandwich in the first few weeks following launch far exceeded our very optimistic expectations. In fact, Popeyes aggressively forecasted demand through the end of September and has already sold through that inventory.”

Popeyes launched the chicken sandwich earlier this month but it didn’t have folks queuing up in long lines until last week, when Black Twitter sparked a debate about who had the best chicken sandwich: Popeyes or Chick-fil-A.

Over the weekend, Tristan Thompson stopped by the Van Nuys location in Los Angeles, where he was met with a long line of folks hoping to get their hands on the sandwich.
To help expedite the need, the baller moved to the front of the line and offered to pay for everyone’s order, Complex reports.
