Pollo Campero, the world’s largest Central American chicken chain with more than 350 restaurants worldwide, opened its flagship Manhattan location on December 7 at 601 Eighth Ave., near Port Authority in the heart of Times Square. A second Manhattan location can also be found at 966 Sixth Ave in the bustling Herald Square, What Now New York reports. 

“We are thrilled to bring the Pollo Campero flavor to Manhattan,” said Director of Marketing Mark Priestland. “New York City holds tremendous opportunity for us as a brand. We look forward to continued development in the area, and we believe that our one-of-a-kind product will be loved by New Yorkers.”

Pollo Campero has a total of nine restaurants already open in the New York area and is constantly receiving inquiries for new locations. A third Manhattan location will be coming to Midtown later this year, with more to follow soon. 

The New York City locations are part of Pollo Campero’s most ambitious growth strategy yet. The brand is aiming to open 250 restaurants across the U.S. within the next four years and solidify its position as a dominant brand in the $40.6 billion chicken franchise segment.

“From individual meals to family meals, whether you are on the go at lunch or during dinner, we have options to suit every occasion,” said Priestland. “In addition, we offer catering solutions to cover a wide range of events, from watching your favorite team to hosting a family reunion, or a business meeting–we’ve got you covered.”
