We opened the very first Pollo Campero in 1971. It was, and still is, a family business - started by the Gutierrez family with one desire - to serve the best tasting chicken possible. To this day, Juan Jose Gutierrez, our CEO, remains personally involved in ensuring our chicken is always fresh and flavorful, and the experience is always unforgettable.
In 2002, when we opened our first US Pollo Campero in Los Angeles, there were lines of people around the store, ready to enjoy the Latin sensation. Today, we have more than 50 U.S. locations across the U.S. And there's more than 300 Pollo Campero restaurants around the world from Costa Rica to Indonesia.
We may be the world's largest Latin chicken chain but our original recipes are still served at every location. Family rules.
