I've found with both KFC and Popeyes that the quality varies noticeably from location to location. I pass on the closest KFC to go the another 10 minutes away because of quality differences.

So true.
Just because it's a franchise doesn't mean the food is exactly the same from one to to the next. I agree.
There are many business' I avoid because another does better work or provides a better product.
Want a stale bread Subway, get one in my town

Franchise is supposed to mean it will be exactly the same. I understand the reality as well.

I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords.

What I can see is onion powder, garlic powder, salt, tumeric , pepper. White floure. They use baking powder as a levening agent. I guess it reacts with the powdered egg and moilsture.


Thanks for the heads up Roch. They fry everything in soy oil, which I'm not supposed to have. I can quit lusting after Popeyes.

LOL I never noticed that. I will have to check out the sign on our new Popeye's nearby. I really have no interest in fried chicken. It's roasted all the way for me.

Did anyone ever go to a Kenny Rogers Chicken place? We had one nearby years ago and we loved it. Apparently the rest of the neighborhood didn't and they closed. It was cooked on a rotisserie over a wood fire.

As Andy and others mentioned, there is a huge difference in quality from location to location. I love Popeyes' spicy chicken and the red beans and rice. At KFC, I really like their grillled chicken. My one and only experience with Bojangles was not good. Church's is okay in a pinch.
