El Pollo Loco’s new top lawyer joins a revamped management team

From tacos to grilled chicken: El Pollo Loco Inc. has a new chief legal officer. The Costa Mesa, California-based grilled chicken purveyor announced that it had hired Jason Weintraub before the Labor Day break. Weintraub is the most recent addition to El Pollo Loco’s restructured management team. His appointment follows COO Miguel Lozano, Jennifer Jaffe, chief people officer, and chief marketer Hector Muñoz, who were brought in over the course of a year.

Weintraub has previously been the general counsel for BSH Home Appliances Corporation in Irvine, where he also led compliance. El Pollo Loco said that while there, he documented transactions facilitating billions in revenue, leading a deal team for multiple strategic acquisitions, and supporting partnerships enabling accelerated growth for the company. Before his stint at BSH, Weintraub worked at Taco Bell, where he led the transactional legal function, developed and implemented a brand licensing program, and led business development for Taco Bell International.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Jason as our new Chief Legal Officer and member of our Leadership Team,” said Bernard Acoca, El Pollo Loco’s president and CEO. “His previous experience in franchise matters will be invaluable as we seek to grow the brand in new geographies and look to forge even tighter bonds with our franchise partners.”
