Meaning and history

El Pollo Loco Logo history


The first location opened in Guasave, Sinaloa, Mexico in 1974. The chain started working in the US in 1980. Only three years later, the restaurants in the US were sold to another owner. As a result, two independent restaurant chains appeared, each controlled by a different company: El Pollo Loco, Inc. (the US) and El Pollo Loco, S.A. de C.V. (Mexico).
