Let’s Be Familia - Because when we gather together, the possibilities are endless.

The first El Pollo Loco opened Mexico in 1975 and came to Los Angeles in 1980.

Since then, we’ve honored our mission of bringing people together around food, family and culture. We put a lot of love in to making our food delicious and that same passion in to supporting our franchisees in feeding the flames of success. From top-tier operations and training systems to world-class marketing programs, we support our franchisees so that they can serve our customers. Familia culture is part of who we are.
