El Pollo Loco Multi-Unit Franchisee Expanding in Northern California
Multi-unit operator Napa Pollo, Inc loves the El Pollo Loco brand and has been a part of the franchise system for more than 18 years now. Last week the franchisee opened its 14th restaurant, marking the brand's first location in Santa Rosa, California.
"Santa Rosa is an amazing community and an ideal fit for the El Pollo Loco brand as we continue to expand and lay down our roots in Northern California," said Manuel Perales, Co-Owner of Napa Pollo, Inc. "We're thrilled to open our doors to our new friends and family and are proud to have the opportunity to provide them with a fun, family-friendly dining experience where they can enjoy El Pollo Loco's signature citrus-marinated, fire-grilled chicken and fresh, authentic menu offerings."
The new restaurant has indoor and patio seating for 90 and incorporates the brand's hacienda design, which features an open kitchen layout designed for guests to view chicken as it is fire-grilled.
"Manuel and the Napa Pollo team have been a remarkable asset to our company and have played an integral role in driving El Pollo Loco's growth over the last 18 years," said El Pollo Loco Senior Vice President of Operations Gus Siade.
El Pollo Loco now has more than 475 company-owned and franchised restaurants throughout Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, Utah, and Louisiana. The brand is expanding its presence in key markets through a combination of company, existing, and new franchisee development.
