The company released a statement on Tuesday that an "extraordinary demand" for the sandwich led to the sale of the company just two weeks after its nationwide debut on August 12.
Popeyes's estimated inventories will continue until late September, but the craze fueled by social media has sparked demand to exceed supply.
"As a result, Popeye restaurants across the country are expected to sell chicken sandwich by the end of this week," the company said in a statement. Many stores are already out of product.
Social media users didn't have news of Popeyes being sold out and responded to the company with crying faces of GIFs and reactions of unbelief. Others comment that they are targeting Chick-fil-A.
But don't worry, these Popeye sandwiches are not forever.
"We, together with our suppliers, are working tirelessly to return the new guest sandwich as soon as possible," Popeys said in a statement. The company said that those who want to be known when they return to the stores must download the Popyes app and "sign up for push notifications."
