Our Story

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 180 Pollo Tropical restaurants and we expect to open 20 new locations per year.

Proven Success

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.
