To celebrate Popeyes' 50th anniversary, they're offering chicken for under $1 on Sunday.

To celebrate the anniversary of its first restaurant opening on June 12, 1972, the fast food chain is offering a special deal of two pieces of chicken for just 59 cents.

The price is significant because it matches the original price offered when Popeyes first opened 50 years ago.

In 1972, Alvin C. Copeland Sr. opened a restaurant called Chicken on the Run in New Orleans, serving traditional Southern-fried chicken.
