A New Era in Chicken: Pollo Tropical® Teams One-of-a-Kind Citrus Marinade With Crispy Chicken

Get ready for Pollo Bites… Pollo Tropical®'s famous 24-hour citrus marinated chicken now served in a whole new way


MIAMI, Feb. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Pollo Tropical®, the quick-service restaurant chain famous for its 24-hour citrus-marinated, fire-grilled chicken, is ringing in a new era of chicken today, adding to its already impressive history of flavorful and crave-able chicken, by launching crispy Pollo Bites. Representing the first step in a bold new platform, Pollo Bites expands the brand’s culinary offerings into the popular crispy chicken category. Always looking to raise the bar on what makes great chicken, Pollo Tropical® is unveiling its own take on crispy chicken with one-of-a-kind, fresh and hand-prepared menu options that feature a selection of unrivaled flavors, courtesy of the brand’s iconic citrus marinade.

Ushering in this new era of crispy chicken is the juicy, flavorful, citrus marinated Pollo Bites. Made fresh daily with high quality, never frozen, No Antibiotics Ever (NAE) chicken breast, Pollo Bites are marinated in the restaurant’s signature blend of citrus juices and spices for 24-hours, then lightly hand-battered and cooked to perfect juiciness. Perfect for meal times, snacking, sharing and dipping on the go, Pollo Bites have a superior, crave-able taste.

“Pollo Tropical® is all about quality, hand-prepared meals. Our menu tells a story that is fresh, about food that never looks like it came off an assembly line,” said Pollo Tropical® President, Danny Meisenheimer. “Pollo Bites is the start of a brand new chapter in that story, a tender, crispy, signature citrus taste bringing in a new age of crispy chicken. Our history has been about making the best chicken for the past 30 years. The launch of our crispy chicken platform shows we’re just getting started.”

Pollo Bites pair perfectly with Pollo Tropical®‘s legendary Saucing Island, which boasts a variety of complimentary unique and tempting sauces, including Spicy Poyo Poyo, Cilantro Garlic, Curry Mustard, Guava BBQ and more.

With the introduction of Pollo Bites—as well as impending menu additions that will round out the new crispy chicken platform—Pollo Tropical® has created an entirely new way for guests to enjoy its Caribbean-inspired, 24-hour citrus marinated chicken. Pollo Bites will soon be joined by other innovative crispy chicken offers that will carry on the fresh and flavorful legacy Pollo Tropical® has established through its special blend of citrus juices and spices.
