Our Success

The first El Pollo Loco, or "The Crazy Chicken," began as a roadside chicken stand in the small town of Guasave on Mexico's Pacific Coast. It featured an authentic family recipe-fresh chicken marinated in special herbs, spices and citrus juices and then flame-grilled to perfection. The restaurant quickly became a local favorite. In 1980, the first California restaurant opened.


Today, El Pollo Loco is owned by Trimaran Capital Partners, a private New York-based asset management firm and Company Management. The tradition continues with signature dishes that satisfy consumers desire for flavorful food that fits well with today's healthy lifestyles. We're currently flame-grilling marinated chicken in 340 El Pollo Loco restaurants: 146 are owned and operated by the company and 194 are owned by franchisees.
