RostiPollos is a restaurant franchise founded in Costa Rica by Nicaraguan businessman Mauricio Mendieta. The franchise specializes in roast and rotisserie chicken dishes,[1] with sides such as salads and fries in a more Central American style. (The name "RostiPollos" roughly translates as "roasty chicken.") Entrees reflect traditional Central American cuisine.

About[edit]

The first restaurant was opened in the wealthy Escazú district of San José, Costa Rica in 1983 by the husband-and-wife team of Mauricio Mendieta Herdocia and Ivania Espinosa.[2] As Mauricio Mendieta is Nicaraguan, the restaurant claims to be the first Nicaraguan restaurant to have franchises.

Location[edit]

It now has locations in Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
