El Pollo Loco posts 10% comp decline in 3Q

COSTA MESA Calif. High unemployment rates, particularly among Hispanics and within El Pollo Loco’s core markets throughout California, were blamed for the chain’s 10.1-percent decline in same-store sales for the third quarter.

Same-store sales fell 9.1 percent at corporate locations and 11 percent at franchise stores. El Pollo Loco, based here, operates or franchises about 415 locations.
