Popeyes is bringing back its infamous chicken sandwiches November 3. Originally released in August, they sold out nearly two weeks after being released.

The chicken sandwich is seemingly meant to rival Chick-Fil-A’s famous chicken sandwich. Both establishments went back and forth on Twitter, prompting a massive response from users across the platform about which sandwich was better. It also caused what some are calling a “Chicken War,” with Buffalo Wild Wings and Wendy’s using the opportunity to promote their chicken, as well.

The CEO of Sun Holdings Inc., which owns 149 Popeyes locations, told Bloomberg last week that the franchise was preparing to bring back the hit sandwich by hiring an extra 400 employees.
Today, in another potential slight to Chick-Fil-A (which is closed on Sundays), Popeyes confirmed via social media that the sandwich will officially return on Sunday, November 3.
Y’all…the sandwich is back Sunday, November 3rd. Then every day. ???????? pic.twitter.com/JDxyCIv0zz
