ATLANTA - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, a division of AFC Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: AFCE), today announces the return of its holiday menu must-have, Cajun Turkey, to give your dinner table some Louisiana flare. Popeyes Cajun Style Turkeys, approximately 9 to 11 pounds, are infused with a unique blend of Louisiana seasonings then flash-fried, creating a unique, crispy coating.
