Located on the ground floor and spanning 150 sqm, Popeyes Al Ghurair Centre Dubai offers its one-of-a-kind chicken recipe with Louisiana-inspired seasonings, freshly prepared, marinated for at least 12 hours, battered and breaded by hand, then slowly cooked to perfection using a proprietary cooking technique to offer a juicy-on-the-inside, crispy-on-the-outside chicken. The menu also features a wide variety of delicious Signature Sides, such as the legendary Popeyes Buttermilk Biscuit, which is a freshly baked specialty of Popeyes!

Popeyes is the first and the only store in the UAE to offer the new Buffalo Ranch Sandwich, a spicy version of the signature Chicken Sandwich featuring a Brioche Bun which was one of the most successful product launches in Quick Service Restaurant history when it was released in the USA in August 2019.

Serving up to 16 guests inside with 52 seats outside, the Popeyes Al Ghurair Centre Dubai restaurant is the first in the UAE to feature the brand’s new modernized design. It includes contemporary décor with bright colors that spark joy, creating a premium experience for guests to enjoy the flavors of Louisiana.

We’re thrilled to open our restaurant in one of Dubai’s most iconic retail destinations, Al Ghurair Centre. Popeyes® is also celebrating its 50th anniversary this year which pairs well for this launch. Both brands have a great history that drives consumers back for more. However, this version of Popeyes has a fresh new diner-centric design and we are committed to offer an even better experience to our guests than ever before, explained Gaurav Arora, Chief Executive Officer, Maristo Hospitality, franchisee partner in the UAE.

This is the 40th Popeyes restaurant under Maristo Hospitality’s franchise. There is a high demand for the signature blend of spices and flavors of Popeyes fried chicken and we will make it more accessible across the country with our growth plan, he continued.
