Teacher of the Year

March 11, 2013

Pollo Tropical® is encouraging the 17 county communities it serves to rally in support of its school teachers and nominate them for the Pollo Tropical Teachers of the Year awards!

A teacher in each participating county will be selected by receiving the highest number of nominating votes, and then recognized as that county’s Pollo Tropical Teacher of the Year. The winning teachers will receive Pollo Tropical complimentary coupons valid for Free Pollo Tropical for a year and a Golden Apple Award. Additionally, the school in each county that originates the most teacher nominations will win a $500 Pollo Tropical donation to its student activities fund.

The Pollo Tropical Teacher of the Year campaign is part of the brand’s emphasis on education in the communities it serves. Those who nominate win too! Just by nominating their favorite teacher and joining Pollo Reward$®, customers are rewarded with a free Guava Bar with any purchase.

Parents in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee can nominate any teacher in any county where Pollo Tropical company-owned restaurants serve by going online at www.PolloTropical.com/MyTeacher. Enrollment in Pollo Reward$® is required to nominate a teacher. Nominations must include the teacher’s full name, school name, school address, school phone number and the subject and grade taught by the nominated teacher.
