Popeyes One-of-a-Kind Coca-Cola® Holiday Cups Back by Popular Demand!16:59 EST Monday, November 18, 2013
ATLANTA (Business Wire) -- Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen, a division of AFC Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ:AFCE), and Coca-Cola® are partnering again this holiday season to introduce three NEW one-of-a-kind collector cup designs depicting scenes inspired by Popeyes New Orleans-rich heritage. Coca-Cola artists created custom Popeyes designs for the holiday limited edition collector cups, featuring the Haddon Sundblom Santa or the gift loaded holiday shopper. All three Popeyes holiday collector cups are free with any 32 oz. purchase and will be available through December 31, at participating restaurants while supplies last.
The first New-Orleans inspired design depicts Popeyes rich heritage as Coca-Cola's Sundblom Santa leads a Mardi Gras parade. The second illustration features Coca-Cola's Sundblom Santa beside a steamboat and the third cup displays a holiday shopper loaded with presents within a Popeyes restaurant setting.
“The response to last year's holiday collector cups was overwhelmingly positive and we are pleased to again partner with Coca-Cola for this unique offer,” said Melanie Barichivich, Popeyes beverage brand manager. “We look forward to seeing Popeyes rich New Orleans heritage paired with Coca-Cola to once again spread holiday cheer this holiday season.”
Popeyes holiday collector cups are made from an injected molded, high-quality heavy plastic, to extend use and are dishwasher safe (top rack).
Popeyes holiday collector cups are filling kitchen cupboards nationwide and are available at participating Popeyes restaurant locations while supplies last. To find the Popeyes closest to you, visit us at www.popeyes.com.
