Pollo Rewards, the loyalty rewards program of Pollo Tropical, is honoring teachers throughout May with its Pollo Tropical “Teachers of the Year” campaign.

Fifteen winning teachers from 15 counties will win free Pollo Tropical for a year by earning the most nominations from students and parents in their respective county.  

Additionally, the school in each county generating the most nominations will win a $500 Pollo Tropical donation to its student activities fund. 

Those who nominate win too! Just by nominating their favorite teacher, customers are rewarded with a free small Pollo Tropical Tropichop with any drink purchase.

Parents in Florida and Georgia can nominate any teacher in any county where Pollo Tropical company-owned restaurants serve simply by logging onto Pollo Rewards at www.PolloTropical.com/MyTeacher. Enrollment in Pollo Rewards is required to nominate a teacher.

Nominations must include the teacher’s full name, school name, school address, school phone number, and the subject and grade taught by the nominated teacher. Each county where Pollo Tropical serves will have a winner, resulting in 15 teachers in all!

“Pollo Tropical and its 'Teachers of the Year' campaign honors and rewards teachers and active schools, parents and students,” says Kim Miller, vice president of marketing and communications for Pollo Tropical. “We hope all of our customers join us in celebrating our teachers and enjoying a well-deserved reward.”

Nominations will be accepted from 8 a.m. Monday, May 2, until 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, 2012. All public, private or charter school teachers are eligible in the following participating counties:

  • Florida: Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Osceola, Lake, Orange, Seminole, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Duval, Lee, and Collier counties.
