Jan. 3, 2020 – Starting January 3, Pollo Tropical is taking its bold flavors beyond chicken with the launch of a Vegan Tropichop and Wrap featuring a “picadillo” made with Beyond Meat.
The Vegan Tropichop gives guests a new way to enjoy one of their most popular menu items. This Tropichop includes your choice of White or Brown Rice, Pollo Tropical’s famous Black Beans, and the picadillo made with Beyond Beef, Beyond Meat’s delicious 100% plant-based ground meat, all topped with sautéed peppers and onions. The Vegan Wrap also features Beyond Beef, your choice of rice, plus black beans and Pollo Tropical’s delicious sweet plantains wrapped in a tortilla. These options are launching at $4.49 and $4.09 respectively.
Pollo Tropical partnered with Beyond Meat to develop these plant-based options that are as unique and flavorful as the menu items that guests have enjoyed at the brand for over 30 years.
“At Pollo Tropical, we pride ourselves on always offering guests the most delicious food at a great value. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the Beyond Meat menu items, so we can offer new great tasting choices to guests looking for plant-based options with the bold flavors they’ve come to expect from us,” said Hope Diaz, Chief Marketing Officer of Fiesta Restaurant Group, parent company of Pollo Tropical.
The Vegan Tropichop and Wrap are now available in restaurants and online for pick-up or delivery through Pollo Tropical’s app.
