PR time for Popeyes, Cont’d

It didn't make it in time for last week's issue so, in fairness, we're now running Popeyes' response to a PR NEWS inquiry about a Baltimore man who bit into his three-piece
Popeyes combo and found a fried rat. (See PR NEWS, October 27, 2003) In an e-mail Kim Englehardt, Communications Manager, Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits, said: "We take this claim
very seriously and are investigating it completely with our R&D and food safety teams as well as our suppliers. Popeyes values all of our customers, and we go to great lengths
to ensure they receive the highest quality food and service available in the quick-service industry."
