Popeyes Chicken It's hard to understand the passion for Popeyes Chicken unless you live in Louisiana. Popeyes Chicken is in everyone's hearts (and stomachs). So how do you give America a taste? You take Louisiana to them. Festivals were created showing the love for Popeyes chicken, spreading the passion and the love for the "best fried chicken in the world". It's not a cult, but it's close.
