Pollo Tropical® Opens Its 93rd Company-Owned Location In Fort Myers, Florida

Stocks in this article: FRGI

Pollo Tropical® recently opened its 93rd company-owned location in Fort Myers, Florida at the Gulf Coast Town Center, to much Florida fanfare! Pollo Tropical is a Caribbean-themed quick-casual restaurant, famous for its marinated flame-grilled chicken, guava barbecue riblets, roast pork and many more Caribbean-inspired favorites.

To celebrate its Fort Myers arrival, Pollo Tropical hosted a free Taste of the Tropics Beach Party.

Festivities began early in the morning, as the first 100 customers in line were entered to win free Pollo Tropical Chicken for a Year. Additionally, each of the first 100 customers received certificates good for a Create Your Own Family Meal on their next visit.

“Fort Myers is a natural compliment for our Pollo Tropical brand presence in Southwest Florida,” said Danny Meisenheimer, Chief Operating Officer of Pollo Tropical. “We look forward to serving loyal fans of Pollo Tropical there as well as new customers for years to come.”

The Fort Myers Pollo Tropical location is open seven days a week, from 10:30 a.m. to Midnight, serving the ever-popular Pollo Tropical marinated, flame-grilled chicken, roast pork, made-from-scratch side dishes and much more. The restaurant also offers beer, wine, sangria, free limited table service, complimentary Wi-Fi and much more. Customers can dine in, take out or use the restaurant’s convenient “Pollo on the Go” drive thru. For more information, visit www.pollotropical.com .
