Detroit Popeyes Franchise Offers Employees Bonus Pay During COVID-19 Crisis


A Detroit Popeyes franchise group is dedicated to giving back to its community by supporting its employees. In an effort to thank employees for their loyalty and carry them through this crisis, John Brodersen, a Detroit Popeyes franchisee, is providing his staff with an Essential Workers Bonus Pay and announces: We are hiring.

Michigan has become one of the country’s most impacted states by COVID-19, and around 80% of cases are in the city of Detroit alone. Every current Popeyes employee at the franchise group’s 20 restaurant locations throughout the Detroit metropolitan area is receiving an additional $5 an hour on top of their current hourly wages. Additionally, all Popeyes locations in the franchise group are seeking to hire additional staff and each new hire will receive the Essential Workers Bonus Pay starting on their first day of work.

“We know times are tough and I am so appreciative of all the hard work our Popeyes employees have displayed everyday throughout this crisis,” said Tanathan Nelson, VP of Operations Detroit Metro. “Our goal is to ensure our company’s employees are being taken care of while they continue to show up and make sure our community has hot, fresh food when they need it.”

From contactless pick-up, drive thru & delivery experiences to increased cleaning procedures, the Popeyes brand is working hard to provide guests with food safely and quickly. The brand has also partnered with No Kid Hungry to help feed the children of America during these trying times and beyond. Guests can simply add a $1 donation to their contactless delivery order when checking out on the Popeyes app, and the brand will match the donation 100%.
