New menu items are on the horizon for Popeyes and Burger King in 2021, including upgrades to existing products.
After experiencing the effects of the pandemic on the restaurant industry, Jose Cil, CEO of Restaurant Brands International, noted in a press release that though they have learned how to manage businesses during this time, the brand realized there is still more opportunity for growth.
This year, the two notable brands will be executing new menu items including new innovation on the already beloved Chicken Sandwich at Popeyes and a brand new chicken sandwich at Burger King.
“This is a deliberate journey, now more than a year-long at each of the brands, to create quality, craveable menu items that excite our guests,” said Cil.
In 2020, RBI also made necessary changes and upgrades to their other fast-food joints including making the Whopper free of colors, flavors, and preservatives from artificial sources, as well as two years of work put in to create the famously popular chicken sandwich from Popeyes.
Last year also saw the upgrade of outdoor digital menus at thousands of Burger King drive-thrus across the US, which is also in-store for Popeyes by mid-2022.
