Pollo Campero will open its doors in Providence, Rhode Island, with a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony commemorating its first Rhode Island location.

Pollo Campero will open the Guatemala-based quick-service restaurant’s 51st store in the U.S. The new restaurant will open its doors to the public on October 30. To celebrate the new Pollo Campero store, the restaurant will host a grand opening ribbon-cutting event on October 29 at 7 p.m.

The ceremony will be attended by various VIPs from the Latino and Providence community, including mayor David N. Cicilline; Roger Suchite, vice president of the Latin network of Rhode Island; the Consul of Guatemala; Central American leaders; and other dignitaries and notables.

Pollo Campero’s pressure-cooked fried chicken, signature Campero beans, mashed potatoes, and horchata drink will be served throughout the evening.

The new Pollo Campero location will highlight the traditions and heritage of the Central American community in Providence. When the restaurant opened its first New England location in Chelsea, Massachusetts, more than 20,000 people flocked to the location each day in the first month of its opening.
