We want franchise owners who share our values

It’s important when researching franchise opportunities to choose a brand that shares what you believe, knows what’s important to you, and is committed to helping you achieve your dreams.

Pollo Campero has a strong culture of family values, and we look for franchise owners who share those values. We are passionate believers that our franchise owners should be committed to their community, to serving others, and giving back. Our restaurants are beloved by millions, and they come to us because we go above and beyond to take care of them, treat them well, and serve them incredible food that they cannot get anywhere else.

Our franchise owners play a key role in creating an environment where people are free to enjoy themselves, create memories, and want to come back. They do this by being exceptional leaders for their teams, by creating their own culture in their restaurants, and by always treating the customers with kindness and respect.

This commitment to franchising with entrepreneurs who share our values is why our existing franchise network is so strong, and it’s going to continue to drive our franchise development as we grow across the nation.

“Our goal is to have 150+ locations over the next three years,” says Luis Javier Rodas, Managing Director and COO of Pollo Campero. “We’re not in a rush – we’re going to grow smart, keeping true to our vision and our strategy and by franchising with the right entrepreneurs. In time, there will be 1,000 Pollo Campero locations across the United States.”
