From the history of El Pollo Loco
El Pollo Loco was founded by Juan Ochoa, in 1975, in Guasave, Mexico. The first restaurant in the US of this chain was open in 1980, in LA, California. In three years it was acquired by Denny’s. As of today the chain counts about 400 locations in the USA. The prices of the El Pollo Poco are considered as average, compared to other popular chains, like Chipolata Mexican Grill, Del Taco and Taco Bell. The chain locations were operating in Oregon, New Jersey, Georgia, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Illinois but were closed during 2011-2012 due to launch of the remodel program. Currently El Pollo Loco operates in Arizona, Texas, Utah, Nevada, California.
The popularity of El Pollo Loco keeps growing. It was featured in the Guinness Book of World Records on the 31st of July, 1995 for building the world’s largest burrito in Anaheim, California.
In 2010 the chain was recognized as the top franchise for Hispanics by the World Franchising Network.
