During the early 1970s, the original Popeyes opened in a New Orleans, Louisiana, suburb. The name came from Popeye Doyle, who rose to fame through the movie "The French Connection." The restaurant specialized in the spicy chicken recipe characteristic of the region. The single restaurant grew into a chain of 2,000 restaurants. Popeyes has locations throughout the world, including restaurants in Canada, Peru, Germany, Jordan and Japan.
