Fast food restaurant chain Popeyes is all sold out of their new chicken sandwich. Demand for the item far exceeded the company’s expectations, with customers devouring a supply of chicken expected to last until the end of September. Unfortunately for customers, Popeyes has yet to announce when the item will be available again.

The company is encouraging fans of the sandwich to download the Popeyes app, which will alert them once the item is back in stock. Jose Cil, CEO of Popeys’ parent company, attributed the success to their “great-tasting product.” Although, he added, “We didn’t expect this type of reaction.”

Popeyes’ new sandwich is a clear attempt to compete with Chick-fil-A’s popular menu item. Prior to the launch of Popeyes’ sandwich, Chick-fil-A appeared to be widely regarded as the king of chicken sandwiches. The fast food feud led many customers to post side by side taste tests of the sandwiches.

According to the reaction of customers on social media, Popeyes seems to be holding its own against Chick-fil-A. The rivalry didn’t stop a Chick-fil-A employee in Greensboro, North Carolina, from extending an olive branch to a local Popeyes. Last week, the Chick-fil-A director walked across the street to a Popeyes location and handed out free chicken sandwiches to the employees.

Not everyone is pleased with Popeyes. A man in Tennesse is suing the company, accusing it of false advertising and deceptive business practices. The man claims he was humiliated by his friends after allegedly damaging his vehicle while attempting to locate the sandwiches and being scammed out of $25 from someone behind a restaurant.
