It's back. Sort of. 

After selling out just two weeks after it was introduced, Popeyes' highly popular chicken sandwich is coming back to around 150 franchise-owned stores in early November, Bloomberg's Leslie Patton reported on Wednesday.

About 150 Popeyes locations operated by Sun Holdings Inc. will offer the sandwich starting in early November, the company's CEO Guillermo Perales told Bloomberg. He added that the restaurants are hiring an additional 400 employees to manage the hype and could designate up to two people per store to make the coveted menu item.

Our franchisees have worked to increase staffing, Restaurant Brands, the parent company to Popeyes, said in a statement to Bloomberg. We have been working diligently to bring the sandwich back to our restaurants soon, as we know our guests are anxiously anticipating its return.

Popeyes launched its chicken sandwich on August 12, igniting a Twitter feud between Popeyes and Chick-fil-A over which chain had the better sandwich. The tweets went viral, prompting a massive demand for the sandwich that outweighed the supply and forced employees to work hours of grueling shifts, sometimes without breaks.

The menu item sold out after just two weeks. Popeyes announced a Bring Your Own Bun program for customers to get a substitute for the sandwich shortly after — and employees across the country were apparently left out of the loop.

An employee in a franchised California Popeyes told Business Insider that his distribution center was preparing for the hype of the chicken sandwich relaunch in September. He mentioned that his location got a shipment of bread for the sandwich on Tuesday and that he heard the sandwich would be back in early November.

Popeyes and Sun Holdings Inc. did not immediately return a request for comment.
