Megan Thee Stallion becomes Popeyes franchise owner and launches her own Hottie Sauce
Written by ABC News on October 15, 2021
Megan Thee Stallion wants to make sure Popeyes lives up to its “love that chicken” slogan as she’s become a franchise owner and is bringing her distinctive Hot Girl Summer flava to the brand.
The 26-year-old MC now has her own Megan Thee Stallion Hottie Sauce.
“I’m appreciative of Popeyes commitment to empowering Black women and look forward to opening Popeyes Restaurants,” the three-time Grammy winner says in a statement. “Teaming up with Popeyes is such a milestone in my journey and evolution as an entrepreneur. I’ve always been a fan of the Popeyes brand and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to join the brand and help create the new Megan Thee Stallion Hottie Sauce for their line-up.”
Megan is from Houston, and together with Popeyes, they are making a six-figure donation to the Houston Random Acts of Kindness charity, whose mission is to promote empathy and compassion while encouraging selfless concern for the welfare of others in the Houston community.
Beginning October 19, Hottie Sauce will be spicing up the Popeyes chicken sandwich and nuggets in the United States, and in 14 countries around the globe. The “WAP” rapper is also launching an exclusive merchandise collection with Popeyes, called Thee Heat. The line will include bikinis, long-sleeve shirts, hats, tumblers and Popeyes chicken tenders plush dog toys.
Megan is promoting her new Popeyes collaboration with a hilarious video tease that features her alter ego, Tina Snow, stealing her Hottie Sauce, and Megan chasing it from her hometown of Houston to Popeyes’ hometown of New Orleans.
