DALLAS - April 20, 2016 // PRNewswire // - Pollo Campero, best known for its Latin-inspired chicken and bold flavors, reported a 7.2 percent same-store sales rise for first-quarter 2016, marking its 17th consecutive quarter with positive comparable growth. The brand's sales growth momentum holds strong as it continues to invest in remodels, new product development and technology.

"Overlapping our double digit same-store growth numbers from 2015 was challenging, but our strong execution, new product news and remodels helped fuel our momentum," said Tim Pulido, CEO of Pollo Campero International.

The brand continues to successfully engage with its millennial base, which according to Technomic's Consumer Brand Metrics, makes up more than 60 percent of its customers. "Millennials are the heaviest foodservice users, and they're looking for bold and unique flavors which plays well for Pollo Campero," said Darren Tristano, President of Technomic.

Pollo Campero plans to grow its units by 20 percent during 2016, as well as continue its remodel rollout. "We're excited about our new restaurant pipeline for this year—we opened four new units during the first months and their initial results are outperforming our expectations," shared Pulido.

As the brand continues its aggressive expansion plan, Campero is also looking to bring new franchisees to support its growth plans in California, Florida and other states.
