MEDIA EVENT FRIDAY – June 28, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 1454 ALTON ROAD, MIAMI BEACH
TOP EXECS OF SAN ANTONIO-BASED TACO CABANA® ARRIVING IN MIAMI ON FRIDAY TO BUS TABLES AND CLEAN COUNTERTOPS AT POLLO TROPICAL AS PART OF HEATed WAGER BETWEEN THE SISTER BRANDS
As part the flavorful wager between Fiesta Restaurant Group®’s sister-brands, Miami-based Pollo Tropical® and San Antonio-based Taco Cabana®, top Taco Cabana executives will arrive in Miami on Friday to bus tables and clean countertops at the Pollo Tropical restaurant at 1454 Alton Road in Miami’s South Beach.
The “HEATed” wager began when the two teams (Pollo Tropical and Taco Cabana) found out they would be battling it out off-court as fans. Fiesta Restaurant Group Chief Executive Officer Tim Taft announced the terms of the bet after game one of the series.
If the San Antonio Spurs had won, the Pollo Tropical executive team would have had to travel to San Antonio and bus tables for a day at a high-profile Taco Cabana restaurant.
However Miami and Pollo Tropical prevailed. Taco Cabana executives consented to the victory and arrive in Miami Friday morning donning their Miami team jerseys and reporting for their HEATed duty at the South Beach Pollo Tropical.
The Pollo Tropical restaurant is located at 1454 Alton Road. The Taco Cabana executives will be the table and countertop cleaning team from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
