Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, known more commonly as just "Popeyes," is a chain
of fast food chicken restaurants established in 1972 and headquartered in New
Orleans, Louisiana. The chain is known for its mild and spicy fried chicken and
its Cajun side dishes, and as of 2007 was the second-largest chicken fast food
chains by units sold, behind Kentucky Fried Chicken.
A new Popeyes restaurant just recently opened locally and I often pass by it commuting to and from work. I noticed this week that in addition to the American flag, the restaurant has begun flying what I can only assume is the Popeyes corporate flag.
The flag features the Popeyes corporate logo on a white field. The logo itself has an orange capital "P" slightly offset in the center of a white circle. The "P" is shadowed in burgundy and fimbriated in white. The white circle is bounded in burgundy, bearing the word "LOUISIANA" arched across the top in white, capital, serif letters, and the word "KITCHEN" arched across the bottom in similar lettering. The words are separated by orange fleur-de-lis on either side. Below the seal is the word "POPEYES" in orange capital lettering.
