SALT LAKE CITY — A Chick-fil-A manager in North Carolina delivered free chicken sandwiches to employees at a rival Popeyes store, according to WCNC-TV.

The Chick-fil-A manager delivered the sandwiches to Popeyes employees who normally visited the Chick-fil-A store for breakfast.

Jene Walker, of Greensboro, N.C., noticed the exchange happen on Monday when they visited Popeyes to try the new chicken sandwich, which has gone viral across the internet, sparking a war between Chick-fil-A and Popeyes.

“I was joking with him, like, ‘What are you doing over here? That’s weird you’re over here with a Chick-fil-A bag at Popeyes.’ Just the timing was weird,” Walker said, according to FOX 4 News.

She said that the man noticed Popeyes had been crowded and decided to bring employees sandwiches “out of the kindness of his heart,” said Walker.

“I just felt that that was just super awesome, especially with everything going on in the media with them,” Walker said.

The Chick-fil-A store manager said the man in the photo, Nick, had been friends with Popeyes employees for a long time, according to Fox News. He was giving free food to workers who have been “stressed out” by the recent rush of customers.

The man also offered Walker free food after they learned they wouldn’t have a chance to try Popeyes’ new sandwich, according to FOX 4.

Walker posted a photo of the moment on social media. It receive 17,000 shares and 20,000 reactions overall.
