Pollo Campero introduced a menu of three meals with 505 or fewer calories. The promotion was launched in stores on January 18.

“We’re taking healthy eating a big step forward by offering our customers three fast, complete, low-calorie meals,” says Roberto Denegri, Campero USA president and chief operating officer. “These meals feature our signature Latin chicken, plus our unique and delicious sides. They may be low in calories, but they are full of the same fantastic ingredients and Campero flavor our customers have always enjoyed.”

Pollo Campero’s new 505-calorie meals include: Quarter Grilled Chicken Meal (total calories: 460 to 504), with one-quarter of a grilled chicken (340 calories), an individual side of either Campero beans (160 calories) or black beans and white rice (120 calories), and water, unsweetened tea, or Diet Coke (1 to 4 calories); Grilled Chicken Sandwich Meal (total calories: 456 to 460), with grilled chicken on Cesaro bread with sauce, lettuce, and tomato (336 calories), an individual side of black beans and white rice (120 calories), and water, unsweetened tea, or Diet Coke (1 to 4 calories); and Grilled Chicken Bowl (total calories: 445 to 449), filled with grilled chicken, Campero rice and beans, and pico de gallo, along with water, unsweetened tea, or Diet Coke (1 to 4 calories).

“We hope to support our customers’ long-term diet plans by giving them a wide variety of healthy, affordable options that still feature our famous Latin flavor,” Denegri says.
