Pollo Regio originated in Monterrey, Mexico and brought its authentic recipe for Mesquite-grilled chicken to Texas in the 90’s. Pollo Regio was founded by Mr. Bazaldua. He set up a food trailer that was outfitted with a charcoal grill, over which he cooked his special-recipe marinated chicken. The demand for his chicken was so great that it wasn’t unusual for him to out sell everything by noon each day and already had people placing orders for the next day. It quickly became a successful concept and soon Pollo Regio moved into a regular storefront.

In 2007 Ricardo Camarena joined Pollo Regio as a franchisee and later on he became member and Vice president of the company. A few years later, Hector J. Rodriguez joined the company he became member and Chief Executive Officer. Pollo Regio’s principals have a great passion for innovation, efficiency, and the pursuit of the highest quality ingredients and products.

Mr. Bazaldua’s legacy continues to be an inspirational and integral part of Pollo Regio for today and future tomorrows.
