HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Popeyes’ wildly-popular spicy chicken sandwich is back in Hawaii.

Dozens lined up early Sunday morning outside of Popeyes on Dillingham for their chance to grab one of the beloved sandwiches. Hungry customers also tested their patience in long lines at Popeyes Mililani.

“It’s crazy but we anticipated a big crowd,” said President of Popeyes Hawaii Sean Uezu.

“People have been waiting for this product for a long time and we know that it’s something that they want so they’re willing to wait for it,” he added.

Back in August, the fast food company announced that it ran out of the popular chicken sandwiches.

Then in October, the company said that the sandwiches would arrive back to most stores across the country on Nov. 3 ― National Sandwich Day.

“We’re all disappointed with the delays and we’re sorry that everyone had to wait so long but we think it’s well worth it,” said Uezu.

The chicken sandwich is now available at all locations in Hawaii.
