TAMPA, (WFLA) — Popeyes hit a roadblock in the chicken sandwich war Tuesday when they announced it sold out of its supremely popular chicken sandwiches.

The fast-food chain released a video highlighting the success of the sandwich, showing the “sold out” signs on restaurant doors across the country.

In a shocking turn of events, Popeyes said it is temporarily suspending production of the sandwich until further notice.

Did the chicken restaurant really sell out of chicken sandwiches or is it a strategy to get people to download their app? The video said those who would like to be notified when the sandwich returns should download the Popeyes mobile app.
