Popeyes® UK, the UK’s fastest-growing chicken QSR brand, has appointed Peter Gibson as Director of Acquisitions and Estates.

The appointment comes after Popeyes® announced plans to double its estate in 2024, opening over 30 new locations by the end of year, to firmly cement its presence in all four corners of the UK.

Tom Byng, Chief Development Officer at Popeyes®, said: 

“We are delighted to welcome Peter to Popeyes® to lead our property acquisition strategy. His experience in the hospitality industry and proven track record of helping some of the biggest restaurant groups across the UK grow makes him the ideal person to take on this important role as we look ahead to an exciting year for Popeyes®.

“Peter will play a critical role in driving this hyper-growth phase of the business’ history, and delivering on our aim to take the total number of Popeyes® UK restaurants to over 60 by December this year. Since opening our first UK store in November 2021 to huge hype and acclaim, customer appetite shows no sign of slowing down. Peter’s appointment is another step towards helping even more people have their first taste of Popeyes®, with a pinch of famous New Orleans spirit.”

Peter Gibson joins from Chicken Shop where he was responsible for the restaurant group’s property function for the past two years as Property Director. His previous roles include Property Director at Flat Iron and Head of Property Acquisitions and Asset Management at Nandos.
