Pollo Campero Announces Opening of Three New Houston Restaurants

(DALLAS, Texas) January 19, 2017Pollo Campero, the world’s largest Latin chicken restaurant brand, announced today it is expanding in Texas, with the opening of three new restaurants in Houston. The first, located at 11570 Gulf Freeway in Houston, opened its doors this week. Two others, located at 7754 West Bellfort and 6905 Highway 6 South in Houston, are slated to open in the first quarter of 2017 and will bring the total number of Pollo Campero restaurants in the Bayou City to eight.

The Houston openings are a part of Pollo Campero’s goal to double the number of its U.S. restaurants in three years. “Houston has always been an important city for Pollo Campero,” said Tim Pulido, President and CEO of Pollo Campero International. “We are thrilled to be adding our first restaurant on Houston’s southeast side and honored to have the opportunity to bring our unique Latin flavors to even more Houstonians.”

Established in 1971, Pollo Campero is known world-wide for its traditional fried and Citrus Peruvian grilled chicken. Its menu also features Latin favorites such as Campero rice and beans, empanadas, plantains, yuca fries, and even Latin drinks. At the center of it all—Campero’s long-standing core values and its commitment to staying true to its Latin roots.

“We know Houstonians have a lot of food choices,” said Pulido. “We also know that one bite of our authentic Latin chicken and it’s clear that there truly is nothing else out there like it.”

The Gulf Freeway Pollo Campero is open for service from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Sunday.



Pollo Campero, considered the home of Authentic Latin Chicken, is the largest Latin chicken restaurant brand in the world. It first opened its doors as a tiny, family-owned restaurant in Guatemala in 1971 with the goal of treating family and friends to its prized chicken recipe passed down from generation to generation. Today, Pollo Campero’s focus on quality, and its mission to stay true to its Latin roots remain the same. Campero is committed to serving unique Latin recipes prepared by hand daily using high-quality and all-natural ingredients. At the heart of that commitment: the promise to use fresh, never frozen, hormone-free chicken paired with traditional Latin sides, drinks and desserts in a vibrant atmosphere. There are more than 350 Pollo Campero restaurants around the world and Campero is accelerating growth.
