Pollo Tropical® Launches New Crispy Chicken Sandwich Platform

Crispy BLT Sandwich highlights brand’s historic introduction

MIAMI (June 5, 2018) – For the first time in the brand’s 30-year history, Pollo Tropical®, famous for its 24-hour citrus marinated chicken, is introducing three entirely new tropically-inspired crispy chicken sandwiches.   

True to its commitment to quality, the three crispy sandwiches begin with Pollo’s fresh never frozen, no antibiotics ever chicken, marinated for 24 hours in a proprietary blend of citrus juices and spices.  The all-natural chicken breasts are then lightly battered and brought to crispy perfection before the sandwiches are prepared three ways and lightly pressed, blending the flavors.

“Over the past year, we have introduced new menu items and quality enhancements as part of our Strategic Brand Renewal Plan,” said Danny Meisenheimer, President of Pollo Tropical®. “Following the success of our Pollo Bites, we are expanding our crispy chicken platform.  Our new line of crispy sandwiches, however, takes us to a whole new level of creativity and raises the bar on what a quality crispy chicken sandwich should be.  There is no other like it.  Period!”

The new sandwiches include:

  • Pollo Tropical® Crispy Chicken BLT Sandwich

The brand’s famous 24-hour citrus marinated chicken breast, Swiss cheese, double smoked premium bacon, fresh-sliced tomato, romaine lettuce and topped with the brand’s proprietary Chipotle Mayo sauce

  • Pollo Tropical® Classic Crispy Chicken Sandwich

The brand’s famous 24-hour citrus marinated chicken breast with fresh-sliced tomato, romaine lettuce and Pollo Tropical’s one-of-a-kind Peppadew® sauce

  • Pollo Tropical® Crispy Chipotle Chicken Sandwich

The brand’s famous 24-hour citrus marinated chicken breast, fresh-sliced tomato and romaine lettuce, topped with Pollo’s famous Chipotle Mayo sauce

The new Pollo Tropical® crispy chicken sandwiches join a family of handheld menu items that offer guests one of the widest varieties of flavorful choices, at an incredible value.  For location information, to order online or for a complete menu visit www.PolloTropical.com.
