Tell us about Pollo Campero
Pollo Campero is the world’s largest Latin chicken restaurant chain. It started as a small family-owned business in Guatemala in 1971. In 2002, the first Pollo Campero location opened in Los Angeles and since then more than 50 locations have opened across the United States.  Pollo Campero means country chicken.
 
Where are most of your restaurants located?
The family-owned company operates more than 400 restaurants in 12 countries around the world. Most of our U.S. restaurants are located in the Los Angeles, New York and Washington D.C. markets, but we have many other locations across the United States with plans for further expansion. Fans can also find us in Bay Shore, Hempstead and Corona. 

What's your specialty---chicken, of course, but what else?
Our chicken is loved by millions of customers around the world. We give our customers an authentic taste of home with a wide selection of Central American-inspired dishes made with Pollo Campero’s proprietary blend of herbs and spices, which were created when we opened our first restaurant in 1971. To complement our grilled and fried chicken, we serve a wide selection of Latin American sides like yucca fries, sweet plantains, black beans and Campero rice. To please a wide variety of taste buds, we also serve chicken bowls.

When do you plan to open?
We expect to open on Dec. 10, at 1805 New York Ave, Huntington Station, N.Y. 11746. Hours of operations will be Sunday through Thursday 10a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. We expect to bring about 25 new jobs to the Huntington Station community. 

What else would you like to say?
“We are very excited to bring our authentic Latin American fried and grilled chicken to our fans in Huntington Station. We look forward to transporting our guests back home through our food while helping them create new memories in the Huntington Station community,” said Lisken Kastalanych, vice president of marketing at Campero USA Corp.

All kidding aside, there's nothing wrong with having Hispanics in Huntington Station. It's Hispanic gangs in Huntington Station that would be a huge problem. This article explains how Hispanic gangs and the drug trade have made one city in Honduras the murder capital of THE WORLD! http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/world/july-dec13/honduras_07-30.html
