This year, the made-up food holiday held annually on Nov. 3 falls on a Sunday, which will be the day Popeyes’ sold out chicken sandwich – the one that prompted this summer’s battle over which chain has the best chicken sandwich – returns to restaurants.
But Sunday also is a day for free food, deals and discounts at restaurants across the country.
Just not at Chick-fil-A restaurants.
The Atlanta-based chain, famous for being closed on Sunday, sent an email to some of its loyalty members this week mentioning Sandwich Day.
Chick-fil-A later apologized for the snafu and confirmed it would still be closed on Sunday.
