DALLAS, May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pollo Campero, home of the Authentic Latin Chicken, is celebrating "Kids Eat Free Month" in its newest restaurant at Farmers Branch during the month of June, benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star.

"Pollo Campero is excited to expand our familia to Farmers Branch," said Tim Pulido, Pollo Campero president and CEO.  "We are even more excited that, through our partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters, children all over the Dallas Metroplex can benefit from that expansion."  

Beginning May 22 and running through June 30, children under the age of 10 can eat free with the purchase of an adult meal at the restaurant located at 12885 Josey Lane in Farmers Branch.  Ten percent of the proceeds from the month will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

"We are delighted to have great partnerships with wonderful organizations such as Pollo Campero," said Rob Roby, Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star CEO.  "The initiative was a big hit last year, and we hope to increase its success in 2015."

Pollo Campero first opened its doors in Guatemala in 1971, treating its customers to tender, juicy chicken made with Campero's proprietary blend of Latin herbs and spices, a recipe it still uses today. 

"Once you taste our chicken, it quickly becomes obvious that there is nothing else out there quite like it," said Pulido.  "From our traditional fried and citrus grilled chicken, to Latin favorites, such as empanadas, plantains and yucca fries, we give our guests a true taste of Latin America in each and every bite."

The new restaurant in Farmers Branch is the fourth Pollo Campero in the Dallas area.  It will be open for service from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

About Pollo Campero

Pollo Campero started as a tiny restaurant in Guatemala with a prized recipe for chicken passed down from generation to generation.  Hundreds of restaurants later, Campero's passion remains the same: to serve the best meals possible to family and friends. The name "Campero" is rooted in Latin American heritage.  Derived from the word "campo" which references vast fields for agriculture and raising free range animals as well as the craftsmanship that goes into it, Campero means "from the campo" or from the earth. Inspired by earth's natural flavors and its Latin heritage, more than 40 years later, Campero's Authentic Latin Chicken has stayed true to its roots.  From the delicate hand-breading, its unmistakable combination of herbs and spices, to 100% natural Latin drinks as well as earthy Latin sides, the restaurants deliver a true Campero experience: unique, exciting and natural flavors straight from the earth.
