Black Owned Businesses That Most Likely Serve Better Fried Chicken Than Popeyes


I must admit, when I started to see posts here and there about Popeyes, I thought it was odd but random. Then I noticed that this past week, there’s been growing pandemonium about fried chicken sandwiches and people are both overjoyed and MAD about it.

Folks have been comparing the mass hysteria to minstrelsy. Personally, while I actually think it’s comical and don’t feel a need to be up in arms, I still acknowledge the importance of SHOPPING BLACK whenever possible.

So here’s a list of Black owned restaurants and chefs who are serving up their own juicy fried chicken sandwiches. And S/O to BlackFoodie.Co for gathering most of this info!
