El Pollo Loco president and CEO Bernard Acoca said: “Our customers are our family and family is at the heart of everything we do, so as we all continue to experience the impact of Covid-19, we are dedicated to making it as easy as possible for more people to get access to our food.

“If we can be a supportive resource to our communities as they are thinking about feeding their families as they shelter in place, we wanted to do so for as long as they need us during this time of uncertainty.”

The company has also launched a campaign to support the free delivery scheme.

El Pollo Loco specialises in Mexican-American cuisine. The company opened its first restaurant in 1980 and now has more than 480 company-owned and franchised restaurants in several US states.

Last month, the company introduced plant-based Chickenless Pollo Taco and Burrito for vegetarian customers.

Meanwhile, the US government has extended social distancing guidelines to 30 April to contain the spread of Covid-19.
