    The new Pollo Tropical crispy chicken sandwiches join a family of handheld menu items.

    For the first time in the brand’s 30-year history, Pollo Tropical, famous for its 24-hour citrus marinated chicken, is introducing three entirely new tropically inspired crispy chicken sandwiches.  

    True to its commitment to quality, the three crispy sandwiches begin with Pollo’s fresh never frozen, no antibiotics ever chicken, marinated for 24 hours in a proprietary blend of citrus juices and spices. The all-natural chicken breasts are then lightly battered and brought to crispy perfection before the sandwiches are prepared three ways and lightly pressed, blending the flavors.

    “Over the past year, we have introduced new menu items and quality enhancements as part of our Strategic Brand Renewal Plan,” says Danny Meisenheimer, president of Pollo Tropical. “Following the success of our Pollo Bites, we are expanding our crispy chicken platform. Our new line of crispy sandwiches, however, takes us to a whole new level of creativity and raises the bar on what a quality crispy chicken sandwich should be. There is no other like it. Period.”

    The new sandwiches include:

    Pollo Tropical Crispy Chicken BLT Sandwich

    The brand’s famous 24-hour citrus marinated chicken breast, Swiss cheese, double smoked premium bacon, freshly-sliced tomato, romaine lettuce and topped with the brand’s proprietary Chipotle Mayo sauce

    Pollo Tropical Classic Crispy Chicken Sandwich

    The brand’s famous 24-hour citrus marinated chicken breast with freshly-sliced tomato, romaine lettuce and Pollo Tropical’s one-of-a-kind Peppadew® sauce
