Popeyes Canada: Edmonton Expansion (Win a $50 Gift Card!)

Popeyes Canada - Alberta - Edmonton - Fried Chicken

Who doesn’t love fried chicken?

I’ve partnered with Popeyes Canada to help promote their latest Edmonton and area expansion, and spread some of that fried chicken love! The newest Popeyes, located at 5000 Emerald Drive in the Emerald Hills Shopping Centre Sherwood Park, is the third to open in the Edmonton area this year.

Popeyes Canada - Alberta - Edmonton - Fried Chicken
The new Popeyes at 5000 Emerald Drive in Sherwood Park.

It’s owned by Kyle and Eddie, the same master franchisers who run the other two locations (in south east Tamarack and north sideGriesbach), and it’s part of the same northern Alberta Popeyes expansion plan which will see:

  • At least four more stores open in Edmonton within this next year
  • A total of 20 spots in northern Alberta by 2024
  • And hundreds of new jobs created for Edmontonians / northern Albertans

I’ve always enjoyed Popeyes chicken.

Kyle says it’s not fast food, it’s good food served fast. I think that’s a great way to describe it.

My friend Taylor and I got to go into the kitchen at the new Sherwood Park location to see the Popeyes process – from battering to marinading (the chicken marinates for 12 hours), there’s a Popeyes science behind how they toss and tumble their chicken- which they get from Sunrise Farms just outside of Okotoks, Alberta.

Great chicken tenders.

Popeyes also open fries their chicken – which we’re told is different from how KFC and Mary Brown’s does it, and something that makes a big difference for flavour.

Great biscuits at Popeyes.

So far Edmonton (and area) have really given a great reception to Popeyes. Kyle says it’s been well above their expectations. (I told you, people love fried chicken).

This Sherwood Park location is the first to feature a drive-thru, but also has the smallest dining area. If this is your nearest spot, take-out is likely going to be quite popular here.

Watch for expansions to Ellerslie, west end and north west Edmonton this coming year and scroll down for a chance to win a $50 Popeyes gift card!
