To honor the fast-food chicken chain’s 50th anniversary, Popeyes will sell two pieces of its bone-in chicken meal for 59 cents, its original price 50 years ago, “Today” and USA Today reported.

To get the deal, customers must make a minimum purchase of $5 through a mobile order on the Popeyes app or through the restaurant’s website, according to USA Today. The limited-time offer cannot be applied to delivery orders, “Today” reported.

The offer celebrates the company’s founding on June 12, 1972, by entrepreneur Al Copeland Sr., USA Today reported. Copeland opened a restaurant called Chicken on the Run in New Orleans, serving traditional Southern-fried chicken, according to the Popeyes website. When the restaurant struggled at first, Copeland renamed it Popeyes after Popeye Doyle, Gene Hackman’s character from the 1971 movie “The French Connection.”

According to People, the offer will last from Sunday until June 19.
