Francis “Chico” Colindres
Chico has worked at Juan’s for eight years. Chico has been a busboy and dishwasher but has found his niche — we think you’ll agree with us — in making fresh guacamole, a Juan’s specialty. From El Salvador, Chico is an accomplished soccer player who formerly played professionally back home. His favorite food? Pupusa, a traditional Salvadoran dish that is a corn tortilla stuffed with meat, beans and rice.
