Pollo Tropical unveils new look in…Sanford?

Check out the new opening of Pollo Tropical ! I got this Press Release in the mail for your pleasure. I am actually a fan of this chicken establishment when I am in the mood!


SANFORD, FL – Pollo Tropical® welcomes the spring season with a fresh new look and new flavors at its Sanford restaurant located at 1001 W.P Ball Boulevard. Pollo Tropical will unveil its masterpiece to the public on Friday, March 26. The Sanford restaurant marks the first location in Central Florida to boast the brand’s elevated concept, which features complimentary table service, real plates and silverware.

The grand re-opening day at the Sanford Pollo Tropical will be buzzing with excitement as customers celebrate the restaurant’s unveiling and also have a chance to win big! Starting at 4:00 p.m., the first 250 customers to arrive at the restaurant, located in the Marketplace at Seminole Towne Centre, can play the Rolling with Pollo dice game. Each participant will roll six dice marked with letters and Pollo Tropical artwork, and the first person to roll “POLLO!” will receive a $5,000 grand prize. The contest is free to enter, participants must be at least 18 years old, and each person receives only one turn.

In addition to offering free table service, the re-branded Pollo Tropical will feature new menu items, such as a new assortment of signature sandwiches and artistic wraps, including the grilled Chipotle Chicken Sandwich, Classic Chicken Sandwich with Peppadew Sauce, Guava Pork BBQ Sandwich, Chicken Caesar Wrap, and Grilled Cuban Wrap.

Some new ingredients to complement Pollo Tropical’s new work of art menu include the use of Sea Salt seasoning instead of iodized salt on side dishes like yuca, rice, beans, and balsamic tomatoes. Other side dishes that motivate the flavorful masterpiece include a new Fiesta Salad – made with black beans and corn, an award-worthy coleslaw and an array of rices and beans inspired by kitchens throughout the Caribbean.

A new kid’s meal menu lets you create your own kid-loving masterpiece with the choice of grilled drumstick & thigh, or grilled chicken breast strips, or four grilled Tropical Wings – along with your choice of any one side dish. But the most exciting part: the kid’s meal also includes a cup or cone of the Vanilla Soft Serve!

Moreover, a diverse wine list from Spain, Argentina, Chile, and Napa Valley starting at just $3.50 a glass and $15 per bottle was also added – plus a signature Sangria and a variety of bottled beers. Customers will be able to unwind with a daily happy hour from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., featuring pitchers of sangria for $5 and $1 off beer and wine.

A full service coffee bar was also added to include lattes, espresso, cappuccino and American coffee.

“We are excited to feature the new concept in Central Florida,” said Vicky Timmer, Director of Operations for Pollo Tropical, Central Florida. “It showcases a unique and fun side to Pollo Tropical that we think the residents and visitors of the area will enjoy.”

The restaurant will also continue to serve up classic favorites like the marinated grilled chicken and the sizzling Fajitas with your choice of grilled chicken or steak with all the Fajita fixings. The complimentary Salsa Bar will also be available with the popular Salsa Fresca, Salsa Fuego, Guava BBQ, Curry Mustard, the new spicy Poyo-Poyo sauce and more.

For those eager to get a taste of the new flavors, the new restaurant will open for business starting at
11:00 a.m. on Friday, March 26, 2010.
