Additional Information

Popeyes, an American fast-food chain, plans to hire 200 employees at its two new restaurants which will be inaugurated in Bucharest this summer. Following the opening of the first restaurant in Romania in early April 2022, Popeyes Romania continues its expansion strategy. The new positions are for crewmembers, shift managers and restaurant managers.

Founded in 1972 in New Orleans, Popeyes is one of the largest quick-service fast-food chains in the world with a presence in more than 25 countries. Popeyes was brought to Romania by Sterling Cruise, the exclusive developer of the Popeyes brand in Romania, following an agreement signed last year with PLK Europe GmbH.
