How Much Does it Cost?
Owning an iconic chicken QSR franchise is more affordable than you might think
Pollo Campero has spent the past 18 years building more than 70 restaurants in the United States. In the process, we’ve learned exactly what a Pollo Campero franchise should cost to build out, which locations have the best potential for long-term growth, and how to appeal beyond our core base of customers to a far larger audience. We’ve also simplified our business model to keep ongoing costs low, streamlined daily operations and created a large support staff to help with everything from site selection, marketing, training, product development, and ongoing coaching to ensure that our restaurants have the resources they need to thrive.
Now, as we begin franchising efforts in earnest, our experience in opening restaurants is a tremendous advantage to entrepreneurs joining the Pollo Campero franchise family.
“What makes us special is we’ve formulated our business model to be engineered toward profitability and lasting growth,” says Sam Wong, Director of Franchising with Pollo Campero. “Coming to the United States 18 years ago, we’ve spent a significant amount of time learning what it takes for a restaurant to become successful, and we’ve adjusted our operations to reflect what we’ve learned. We now focus heavily on site selection, and after streamlining our business model and reinvesting in the franchise support center, we’re now in a great position to help franchisees capitalize on the tremendous demand for new Pollo Campero locations.”
