Popular US fast food chain Popeyes could make its debut in Australia as its parent company eyes global expansion.

Restaurant Brands International, which owns Popeyes, is looking for Australian investors to disrupt the dominance of KFC, Red Rooster and Oporto in the Aussie chicken market. Popeyes recently surpassed KFC in the US, becoming the second-largest chicken chain behind Chick-fil-A.

With over 3,000 outlets across the US and Canada, Popeyes ventures into New Zealand this year, starting with its first store in Auckland in April.

This move marks the latest US fast food venture in Australia, following the footsteps of Wendy’s, In-N-Out Burger, and Chuck E. Cheese.
