John Murphy and David Henry like what they see with the El Pollo Loco fire-grilled chicken chain. They just opened their fourth unit in Irving, Texas. All four locations are owned and operated by Chicken Time IV, LLC, an affiliate of Chicken Time Holdings, LLC and Henry Investment Group. Murphy serves as the franchise operator for all four locations.
"We are excited to bring El Pollo Loco to Irving and offer the community a family-friendly environment where they can enjoy our signature citrus-marinated, fire-grilled chicken and authentic Mexican offerings," said David Henry, chief executive officer of Chicken Time Holdings, LLC. "The local community has been vocal in their desire to have their very own El Pollo Loco and we're pleased to welcome residents and visitors of Irving to our new restaurant. We look forward to being an active part of the community and providing a healthier dining option to join the Irving restaurant scene."
The 3,000-square-foot restaurant seats 62 guests and incorporates the brand's new 'Vision Design,' which highlights an authentic, Mexican-inspired atmosphere and encompasses El Pollo Loco's menu and brand identity. The new design's warm textures, rustic elements and a focus on the brand's open kitchen layout allows for guests to view El Pollo Loco's chicken as it's fire-grilled.
El Pollo Loco has more than 465 company-owned and franchised restaurants in Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, and Utah, and is expanding in key markets like Houston and Dallas through a combination of company and franchisee development.
