Annual sales at Popeyes UK have passed £100m, according to CEO Tom Crowley, as the group’s estate nears 50 sites.

The fast-growing fried chicken QSR brand, which is backed by TDR Capital in the UK, has just opened a drive-thru in Manchester on Bury New Road, marking its second location in the city.

Popeyes entered the UK market in November 2021 and now operates an estate of 47 sites, which includes restaurants, drive-thrus and delivery kitchens.

Crowley said: “In just 30 months the outstanding Popeyes UK team have created a business with +£100m annual sales, a pipeline of ‘top drawer’ new sites including +25 for the year ahead and we are now achieving our highest product ratings…. ever!

“It doesn’t feel like work when you are alongside some of the most talented people in the industry.”

Popeyes has previously set out plans to open more than 30 restaurants in 2024​, with an aim to reach 60 sites in total by the end of the year.

It comes after TDR Capital took a controlling stake of the UK business back in January​.

Openings so far this year have also included Bishop Auckland, Exeter, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Nottingham, Swansea, Birmingham, and London Waterloo Station.
