El Pollo Loco announces a new restaurant in the Kansas City area

Kansas City, Mo – A popular restaurant chain is ready to bring fresh food to Kansas City.

El Pollo Loco plans to open eight locations in the Kansas City area, as well as other parts of Missouri and Kansas over the next decade.

The chain is known for its fresh, flame-grilled chicken marinated daily with a secret recipe passed down through the generations.

Freshly roasted chicken is used as the base for several meals, including individual or family chicken meals, bowls, burritos and salads.

“Kansas and Missouri are untapped markets for El Pollo Loco, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to join the brand in the early stages of its regional expansion,” Shawn Choudry, one of the partners of EPL Missouri LLC, said. “The brand is iconic and the menu is different and better than the usual fast food. This is a place that has the right recipe for success.”

The loactions have not been announced yet, but El Pollo Loco says the location may include a dining room that opens to a patio area, drive-thrus, and a mobile easy-to-go and delivery area.

The company says each restaurant will employ as many as 50 people.
