COSTA MESA, Calif. - Dec. 12, 2016 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - El Pollo Loco (Nasdaq:LOCO), the nation's leading fire-grilled chicken chain, opened its newest north Texas location in the city of Grand Prairie today. The new restaurant, located at 2125 North Highway 360, is owned by Chicken Time III, LLC, an affiliate of Chicken Time Holdings, LLC and Henry Investment Group. The restaurant marks the first location to open in Grand Prairie and eighth location to open in the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) market.

"As we open our third DFW restaurant, we want to thank El Pollo Loco for being such a great partner to us. We look forward to being an active part of the community and offering guests a healthier and delicious dining option."

The brand's signature citrus-marinated chicken is prepared on an open flame grill by El Pollo Loco Grill Masters before it is hand-cut and served in its chicken meals and crave-worthy Mexican-inspired entrees. Whether guests are looking for a family chicken meal, burrito, salad, quesadilla or under 500-calorie options, El Pollo Loco has a wide variety of flavorful offerings.

"We are thrilled to have Chicken Time Holdings expand the brand to Grand Prairie and continue to help us establish our presence in DFW," said Steve Sather, Chief Executive Officer at El Pollo Loco. "We look forward to working together to continue to open new locations and bring El Pollo Loco to more communities across the market."
