ATLANTA, 2016-Nov-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen today (Nov 21, 2016) announced that for the 5th consecutive year, it has partnered with Coca-Cola® to create this year’s Holiday Collector Cups. Artists at Coca-Cola, together with Popeyes, catch the spirit of the holidays with four new designs featuring festive scenes with iconic characters to celebrate the season.
The famed Sundblom Santa, which helped shape the modern view of Santa Claus, makes an appearance on two of the new designs, stuffing stockings with snack boxes full of Popeyes favorites and getting ready to go down a chimney in New Orleans’ French Quarter.
The Coca-Cola Polar Bears are also featured in a new design playing Zydeco music, bringing the sounds of Louisiana to their native habitat. A fourth design shows Santa relaxing on the beach getting ready to watch the sunset and anticipating viewing the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl, which airs December 23rd at 1 pm ET on ESPN.
“Sharing the joy of the season with our guests through our beautiful collector cups has become one of our traditions at Popeyes,” said Hector A. Muñoz, Chief Marketing Officer – US, Popeyes. “Once again artists have captured the spirit of Louisiana and Popeyes, along with the holiday season, by using some of the most recognized and beloved images including the classic Sundblom Santa and Coca-Cola Polar Bears. We look forward to our guests collecting all four exciting designs before they are gone.”
Popeyes Holiday Collector Cups are available in participating restaurants through Dec. 31st while supplies last.
