Newly renovated Pollo Campero donates $10k to Big Brothers Big Sisters & Central American charity

Well, this is a nice story to start your week. I got a press release that Pollo Campero, the Latin American chicken chain with a location at 3229 14th Street NW, has donated $10,000 to a few charities -- Big Brothers Big Sisters of the National Capital Area, which gives kids mentorship and friendship, CAFRED, a Central American educational development charity, and Big Brothers Big Sisters for an area near Richmond.

The restaurant has also been renovated and has a new sign (at right), which looks pretty nice -- though I do miss the silly cartoon cowboy chicken thing.

Pollo Campero, founded in Guatemala, is pretty darn tasty. It's also super popular south of the border -- there's a big one right near the main airport in El Salvador and tons of people coming to the US buy big bags of it to bring back. It's basically an additional carry-on there.
