El Pollo Loco is bringing the design-forward vision to life at every touchpoint of the customer experience, from packaging to in-store merchandising and gift cards. The focus on design is consistent with the company’s ongoing commitment to match its high-quality food and service.

As part of the design-first approach, El Pollo Loco released a selection of contemporary and stylish promotional in-store elements to celebrate seasonal moments. The latest release comes just in time for the holiday season, featuring holiday-themed drink cups, side cups, tray liners and gift cards. The new look is simple, fresh, and is part of El Pollo Loco’s vision to make artistic creative a tradition that marks the start of the holidays each year.

The company will also continue its commitment to visual storytelling and celebrate its Mexican-American roots with the restoration of murals across Los Angeles. El Pollo Loco will dedicate even more of its storefronts as canvasses for new murals in 2021.
