I have teamed up with Pollo Tropical to bring you an inside look at Pollo Tropical with a series of special edition episodes of WTF? – Where’s the Food? Once a month, I will take you behind the scenes inside Pollo Tropical’s test kitchen, interview members of Pollo’s Executive Team, bring you the latest on Pollo’s newest menu items and so much more. Your love for Pollo will only grow after this series of episodes.
With that said, let’s talk about episode one.
On this special edition episode of WTF? – Where’s the Food?, I sit down with Sandra Pascual, who is the Vice President of Marketing and Menu Planning at Pollo Tropical. Sandra met me at one of their Pembroke Pines locations to talk about how menu items make the final menu and get released storewide, their newest menu item ‘Flame-Grilled Chicken Pinchos’ and the amazing catering you can order right now at Pollo Tropical.
Speaking of the new Chicken Pinchos at Pollo Tropical, you need to try these. You can get them in an original version and spicy BBQ version. You can get them on a Create-Your-Own TropiChop; as a Platter with one or two sides; or even as a Chicken Pinchos 10-Pack for the whole family or co-workers to enjoy.
Pollo Tropical also offers catering at an incredible value! From Create-Your-Own TropiChop buffets to sandwiches, wraps and signature side dishes, Pollo Tropical can help you make everyone at your event happy.
