Miami-based Pollo Tropical® is famous for its high-quality food delivered at an unparalleled value – notably its signature citrus-marinated chicken grilled over an open flame. The brand is further differentiated through its fresh-grilled, Caribbean-inspired menu featuring roast pork, ribs, wraps, salads, sweet plantains, and a wide array of made-from-scratch signature sauces. Pollo Tropical offers modified table service with a laid-back, fun and family-friendly vibe, and serves healthy fresh-grilled food you can feel good about. We are a high-volume, fast casual concept offering drive-thru convenience. There are currently more than 130 Pollo Tropical restaurants and we expect to open 20 new locations per year.
Pollo Tropical restaurants are profitable. Average unit volumes exceed $2.5 million. We serve 5,000 customers per week, per restaurant. Because of our high volume, we are a valued-tenant wherever we do business. Our customers have higher incomes, are better educated, and work in predominantly white-collar professions. We attract both individuals and families alike, resulting in busy lunches and dinners, 7 days a week.
