Expect a mid-2020 national launch for McDonald's crispy chicken sandwich, analyst predicts

After developing a competitive crispy chicken sandwich, McDonald’s next hurdle is to find enough chickens to support demand, said Wall Street firm Stephens.

While investors were hoping for an early 2020 launch of McDonald’s new crispy chicken sandwich, Stephens forecasts the fast food chain will run into supply issues, delaying the launch.

“We believe the high-quality chicken sandwich market is a place MCD wants to become more relevant and anticipate a mid-year national launch,” sad Stephens analyst Will Slabaugh in a note to clients on Wednesday.

The so-called “chicken wars” have put pressure on McDonald’s to find a competitive chicken option for the fast-food chain to rival Chick-fil-A and Popeyes. McDonald’s tested its sandwich in Houston and Knoxville and the product was well received, said Slabaugh, along with other analysts. So much so, strong customer demand produced product shortages early on.

Chick-fil-A and Popeyes use 5 lb birds for their sandwiches and Stephens said McDonald’s uses between a 5 lb and 7 lb bird.

“It’s important here to note that there are supply realities that MCD has to deal with and simply not enough 5-lb. product to begin to supply the MCD system,” said Slabaugh. McDonald’s high volume operations make it “nearly impossible” to thaw, 24- hour marinate, and hand bread its sandwich.

“Therefore, while improvements may be made, we would expect the launch of a similar, pre-breaded product by early summer,” said Slabaugh.

Stephens raised its full year 2020 U.S. same-store sales estimates to 3.5% from 2.9% and its earnings per share estimates to $8.54 from $8.52, “primarily on an anticipated Crispy Chicken Sandwich launch.”

The firm said the crispy chicken sandwich could generate more traffic than fresh beef.

Stephens has a overweight rating on McDonald’s and a $225 per share price target. McDonald’s closed at $194.95 per share on Tuesday.

Shares of McDonald’s are up about 10% this year.

Grubhub’s findings were based on orders from over 21 million users on its platform. The delivery service analyzed order trends from January to November 2019 and compared results to the same time in 2018, according to the company.

Look out Chick-fil-A and Popeyes, McDonald's new chicken sandwich is 'really good,' analyst says

Chick-fil-A and Popeye’s are about to get some new, crispy competition.

Fast-food restaurant chain McDonald’s is expected to launch a crispy chicken sandwich in the beginning of next year and Telsey Advisory Group said its going to be a “big U.S. hit for the chain.”

“We believe MCD’s new Crispy Chicken Sandwich and Biscuit will usher in a successful new U.S. lineup of better-quality chicken in 2020 and 2021,” said Bob Derrington, Managing Director and Senior Research Analyst at the Telsey Advisory Group in a note to clients on Thursday.

The U.S. chicken marketplace has grown more than 14% this year to about $4.5 million sales per store, according to the firm. Chick-fil-A, Popeye’s and Wendy’s have achieved great success from the popularity of their chicken sandwiches. The so-called “chicken wars” have put pressure on McDonald’s to find a competitive chicken option for the fast-food chain.

“We believe MCD’s new Crispy Chicken product is almost ‘ready for primetime’ and successfully face-off against its major nemesis Chick-fil-A,” said Derrington, who tried a trial of the sandwich last week in Tennessee. “MCD’s New Crispy Chicken Sandwich Tastes Really Good!,” he added.

After trying a test of McDonald’s crispy chicken sandwich, here’s what the analyst concluded:

The new Crispy Chicken breasts were lightly battered, juicier and more flavorful, and in our view a terrific upgrade from MCD’s more heavily battered, less juicy Buttermilk Crispy Chicken.

McDonald’s Crispy Chicken includes a full muscle chicken breast, lightly breaded with a sweet fried flour coating.

The Crispy Chicken sandwich is served on a lightly buttered and toasted premium Brioche potato bun and topped with two crinkle-cut pickle chips.

Derrington said no matter how good the sandwich is, its up to McDonald’s marketing team and to convince consumers to buy it and operations team in store to execute and deliver a strong product experience.

McDonald’s base crispy chicken sandwich was “priced aggressively” at only $3.49, while Chick-fil-A’s sandwich is priced at $3.79. Both of Popeye’s sandwiches retail for $3.99, Derrington noted.

Telsey Advisory Group has an outpeform rating on McDonald’s, as well as Wendy’s and Jack in the Box. The firm has a neutral rating on Yum! Brands, Domino’s Pizza and Restaurant Brands.

Shares of McDonald’s are up nearly 10% this year.

McDonald's is testing a chicken sandwich

McDonald’s is entering the chicken sandwich wars.

The chain is testing a Crispy Chicken Sandwich in Houston and Knoxville, Tennessee. The sandwich features a fried chicken filet served on a buttery potato roll, topped with butter and pickles. A deluxe version also includes tomatoes, lettuce and mayo.

The chain on Sunday teased the test, which will run from Dec. 2 through Jan. 26, according to a McDonald’s spokesperson.

“Houston. Knoxville. Lunch tomorrow? No beef,” the fast-food giant tweeted.

McDonald’s franchisees have asked for a Southern-style chicken sandwich as Chick-fil-A’s threat to their business grows. The board of the National Owners Association, an independent franchisee group, wrote in an email in July that a chicken sandwich should be their top priority.

McDonald’s carries Chicken McNuggets and the McChicken sandwich. This fall, it debuted the Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich, a limited-time offer that launched to little fanfare. But the Chicago-based chain has not tested anything similar to Chick-fil-A’s chicken sandwich since 2018, when it tested the Ultimate Chicken Sandwich in more than 160 locations in Washington state.

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, which is owned by Restaurant Brands International, has seen great success with its own take on the chicken sandwich. After selling out of the new item in a little more than two weeks in August, the sandwich returned in early November. Thanks to the launch of the sandwich, Popeyes had its best quarter in nearly two decades, reporting U.S. same-store sales growth of more than 10%.

Chick-fil-A’s chicken sandwich has helped the chain become the nation’s third-largest restaurant chain by sales, trailing only McDonald’s and Starbucks. McDonald’s has roughly 14,000 restaurants in the U.S., while Chick-fil-A operated 1,989 stand-alone restaurants and 363 “licensed units,” which are the nontraditional stadium, amusement park and university locations, by the end of 2018.

Forget the turkey sandwich — try these creative, cost-effective Thanksgiving leftovers instead

If you’re anything like me, by the Saturday after Thanksgiving you can’t stomach the thought of another turkey sandwich. But rather than wasting food or blowing my budget on takeout, for the last few years I have repurposed my leftovers to get the most out of my fall feast. I still spend a pretty penny pulling the big day together, but turning the leftovers into other tasty meals makes the expense easier to swallow.

Thanksgiving fritters

I can’t claim credit for coming up with this idea — I first had this kind of fritter at AJ’s Compact Turkey Dinner at Comet Café in Milwaukee, Wisconsin — but it’s one of my absolute favorite uses of Thanksgiving food. I combine mashed potatoes, stuffing, and diced turkey until well mixed, and form the mixture into large balls. Because I live in Milwaukee, we coat everything in beer batter, but you could just as easily coat the balls in an egg wash and breadcrumbs. I fry the balls in a deep skillet and dip them in leftover gravy or cranberry sauce.

Macaroni and cheese fritters

Macaroni and cheese rarely makes its way onto my Thanksgiving table, but it is a staple for millions of families. I also seldom repurpose it because I just eat it cold while standing in front of the open refrigerator. But it does make great fritters — the concept is similar to arancini (fried risotto balls). I find it helpful to briefly freeze the balls of macaroni before breading and frying them. This helps the pasta stay together in the hot oil. And because I am living my best Midwest life, I always serve them with a side of ranch.

Soup

With days getting shorter and temperatures dropping, few things are as satisfying as a good bowl of soup. I like to use leftover turkey in place of chicken in classic soups, and I am sure turkey would also work great in place of chicken in a white bean chili. But the most satisfying post-Thanksgiving soup I have made is Turkey Enchilada Verde Soup.

Pot pie

What could be more comforting on a cold fall night than a piping hot turkey pot pie? Not much, except maybe a turkey shepherd’s pie with a broiled mashed potato topping. Pot pie and shepherd’s pie are great vehicles for using up leftover vegetables like extra green beans or Brussels sprouts.

Tacos and enchiladas

I grew up in Texas, and post-Thanksgiving turkey tacos were an annual tradition in my family. I always have taco seasoning on hand from my favorite local spice shop, but any taco seasoning you like will transform bland turkey into delicious tacos in almost no time at all.

Any taco seasoning you like will transform bland turkey into delicious tacos in almost no time at all. Brooke Frizzell

When I have a little more time on my hands, enchiladas take the turkey to the next level. My first choice is a North Texas staple, sour cream chicken enchiladas made with turkey. I use a recipe from Lisa Fain’s original “Homesick Texan” book, but any enchilada recipe you like will work.

Man killed at Maryland Popeyes in fight linked to popular chicken sandwich

A man was stabbed to death outside a Maryland Popeyes in a fight over the chain’s popular fried chicken sandwich, police said.

A spokeswoman for the Prince George’s Police Department said the 28-year-old, who has not been identified, was killed at a restaurant in Oxon Hill, outside Washington D.C.

A fight began after someone cut in line, spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said.

“For you to get that angry over anything — for that type of anger to develop into this type of violence, again is a very sad and tragic day,” Donelan said.

The fight began inside the restaurant and later moved outside, Donelan said. The man was rushed to a hospital where he later died.

Authorities did not identify a suspect.

Popeyes began selling the sandwich on Sunday after a two-month hiatus. First introduced in August, it sold out in just two weeks — a surge in popularity prompted by a viral feud with Chick-fil-A.

This summer, customers angry about the sandwich shortage threatened restaurant workers at a franchise in Texas. Another filed a lawsuit in Tennessee alleging “deceptive business practices.”

“We do not yet know whether this was the result of a dispute over one of our products or something unrelated, but there is no reason for someone to lose their life on a Monday night in a parking lot,” Popeyes said in a statement to NBC News. “Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends and we are fully cooperating with local authorities.”

A 3-Step guide to mastering Singapore 'street food'

Singapore may be referred to as Asia 101, but it’s common to arrive at this culinary paradise and get schooled by the local food scene. Unlike other Asian cities, Singapore’s “street food” is no longer found on the streets. Starting in the late 1960s, the government moved to formally resettle street vendors into organized centers with seating and strict sanitation requirements. But where to start? Here is a guide to satisfy the most apprehensive to the most adventurous of palates.

Step 1: Food courts

Food courts are located in malls, office buildings and shopping centers around the island. They are clean and air-conditioned, and for many visitors, they’re the easiest way to sample local cuisine. Food Republic, Kopitiam, Koufu and Food Junction are some of the food court operators with multiple outlets in Singapore. To get started, consider: Fitra Hainanese Chicken Rice at Wisma Atria — As the name implies, Fitra (which is halal) serves up Hainanese chicken rice, the unofficial dish of the city-state. A generous helping of rice is cooked with chicken stock, garlic, ginger and pandan leaves and then served with either poached or roasted chicken. Small dishes of dark soya sauce, chili and garlic accompany the dish, with cucumber spears on the side.

HK Roast, Food Republic at Manulife Centre — Char siew wonton noodles are a savory dish of noodles, green vegetables (often cai-xin), roasted pork and boiled wontons filled with pork. It comes dry or in a soup — state your preference when you order.

Indian Express, Rasapura Masters at The Shoppes at Marina Bay — This spot is popular for naan (Indian flat bread cooked in a tandoor). Choose it plain or with butter, garlic or cheese, tear into small bites and dunk it into a dish of butter chicken.

Step 2: Hawker centers

Hawker centers are open-air food markets, usually with covered seating. Certain hawker centers, due to their location or reputation, are popular with tourists, including: Lau Pa Sat — Every night at 7:00 p.m., a street adjacent to this center is closed to cars and filled with tables and stools so customers can eat under the night sky in the Central Business District. These evenings are famous for satay (stall Nos. 7 and 8), which are small sticks of barbecued lamb, chicken or beef dipped in peanut sauce.

Newton Food Centre — Arguably the most popular center of all (even before it was featured in “Crazy Rich Asians”), this spot is famous for many dishes, including the carrot cake at Heng (stall No. 01-28), a 2018 Bib Gourmand Winner. Not to be confused with the Western dessert, this is a savory dish of steamed white radish and rice flour fried with egg, preserved radish and spices. Order it white (plain) or black (fried with dark soy sauce) and with or without chili.

This hawker center overlooks Marina Bay and has convenient public transportation options nearby. If you’re lucky, there may be a free outdoor concert courtesy of the Esplanade too.

Popeyes' chicken sandwich to return in November

Popeyes’ chicken sandwich will return to stores Nov. 3.

In August, the Restaurant Brands International chain sold out of its new chicken sandwich in a little more than two weeks. The supply was supposed to last until the end of September.

The sandwich was designed to help Popeyes compete with Chick-fil-A, the market leader in fast-food chicken. It will return on a Sunday — the day of the week that all Chick-fil-A locations are famously closed.

Popeyes’ plan worked a little too well the first time. Thanks to a Twitter spat with Chick-fil-A that went viral, Popeyes sold as many as 1,000 sandwiches per day, according to estimates from KeyBanc Capital Markets. Customers who wanted to compare the new sandwich to Chick-fil-A’s classic chicken sandwich reported long lines inside restaurants and at the drive-thru.

Those who didn’t manage to get a Popeyes’ sandwich instead went to Chick-fil-A to fulfill their craving, according to a report from Gravy Analytics.

Gravy Analytics, a Dulles, Virginia-based firm, used anonymous location mobile data to analyze foot traffic. It found that fast-food chicken restaurants as a whole did not experience more traffic when Popeyes’ locations were contending with 30-minute long lines.

When both Popeyes and Chick-fil-A were experiencing a traffic bump, they were stealing customers from other similar restaurants. For example, Yum Brands’ KFC saw its average daily foot traffic decline 12% between Aug. 12 to Aug. 31 compared with July 22 to Aug. 11, according to Gravy Analytics data.

To prepare for consumer demand of the chicken sandwich, one Popeyes franchisee is planning on hiring 400 more employees, according to a Bloomberg report.

Thanks to the launch of the sandwich, Popeyes had its best quarter in nearly two decades, reporting U.S. same-store sales growth of more than 10%. Its parent company reported its third-quarter results on Monday,

Popeyes sold an estimated 1,000 chicken sandwiches a day, doubling store traffic

The chicken in Popeye’s sandwich crunches audibly when you bite in, with all those nooks and crannies on the surface shattering into a thousand delicious pieces. No wonder Popeyes ran out of its new chicken sandwich. An analyst at KeyBanc Capital Markets estimates the fast-food chicken restaurant sold about 1,000 chicken sandwiches a day. Sandwich sales also accounted for about 30% of Popeyes sales in the time it was available while store traffic doubled, the analyst said, citing proprietary tra

Popeyes sold an estimated 1,000 chicken sandwiches a day, doubling store traffic

The chicken in Popeye’s sandwich crunches audibly when you bite in, with all those nooks and crannies on the surface shattering into a thousand delicious pieces.

No wonder Popeyes ran out of its new chicken sandwich.

An analyst at KeyBanc Capital Markets estimates the fast-food chicken restaurant sold about 1,000 chicken sandwiches a day. Sandwich sales also accounted for about 30% of Popeyes sales in the time it was available while store traffic doubled, the analyst said, citing proprietary tracking data. For this reason, the firm is bullish on the parent company, Restaurant Brands International, and raised its earnings estimates.

The sales boom got its spark after a Twitter feud with Chick-fil-A in August led consumers to try the new sandwich. The chicken sandwich’s massive popularity also sent ripples through the fast-food industry as Popeyes same-store sales skyrocketed.

“Unbeknownst to [parent Restaurant Brands International] at the time, the launch of a new chicken sandwich at Popeye’s and subsequent twitter debate would be a viral sensation that would disrupt the fast food industry and likely shape the outcome of 3Q19 results for some of the category’s largest players,” analyst Eric Gonzalez said in a note.
