When it comes to the world of fast food, we still have SO many question left unanswered, like what's REALLY going into the meat and how does McDonald's make their french fries so darn delicious!
However, this is just plain baffling!
Popeyes, the third largest fried chicken chain in the U.S., recently paid a whopping $43 million for the recipes owned by a Louisiana-based seasoning company!
The strange thing is this is the same recipe they've already been using for years! In fact, the company was owned by the late Popeyes founder Al Copeland Sr., who died in 2008!
So why did they have to pay so much money for it? Well, the fast food chain was already paying $3.1 million royalty fees every year and was set to continue making payments through 2029!
Now Popeyes OFFICIALLY owns the recipes that they've been using for years, so they've got that going for them, which is nice! Now they just need to find a recipe as disgusting as KFC's Double Down and they'll be set!
