Case Study: Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen

Case Study: Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen

Overview

Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, or often referred to as Popeye’s Chicken & Biscuits, is a large quick-service chicken chain with more than 2,000 locations in the United States and in over 22 countries.

Challenges

The Popeye’s in Oklahoma all have steam tables where a float regulates the water levels. When the water level drops, more water will go into the steam table because of the float. But due to extremely hard water in the state, the float would scale up badly and would not allow the tables to refill. This would be a constant issue that required a lot of labor, cleaning and replacement.

Solution

A commercial model SB-250 was installed in each of the Popeye’s branches in more than 40 locations around the Oklahoma state area.

Installed

2011-present

Outcome

The ScaleBlaster unit has kept the floats completely scale-free, saving the branches from the continuous maintenance they were experiencing.
