We opened the very first Pollo Campero in 1971 in Guatemala. 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, 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 our flavorful chicken. Today, we have more than 70 U.S. locations across the U.S. and there are more than 350 Pollo Campero restaurants around the world from Ecuador to Italy.
