Popeyes is gearing up for the impeding return of its popular chicken sandwich by hiring more workers.
"Our franchisees have worked to increase staffing," Restaurant Brands said in a statement to Bloomberg. "We have been working diligently to bring the sandwich back to our restaurants soon, as we know our guests are anxiously anticipating its return."
Popeyes would join Taco Bell in hiring more workers to meet demand for a food craze. In 2012, 15,000 people were hired in response to the popularity of the Doritos Locos Tacos.
The company wouldn't give a date for the sandwich's return.
