About Rospipollos
RostiPollos is a restaurant franchise founded in Costa Rica by Nicaraguan businessman Mauricio Mendieta. The franchise specializes in roast and rotisserie chicken dishes, 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.

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. As Mauricio Mendieta is Nicaraguan, the restaurant claims to be the first Nicaraguan restaurant to have franchises.  It now has locations in Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
