US-based quick-service concept Pollo Tropical has expanded its menu with the launch of three tropically-inspired crispy chicken sandwiches.

The flavours include crispy chicken BLT sandwich, classic crispy chicken sandwich and crispy chipotle chicken sandwich, which will join the restaurant’s handheld menu items portfolio.

Crispy chicken BLT sandwich is a blend of citrus marinated chicken breast, Swiss cheese, double smoked premium bacon, fresh-sliced tomato and romaine lettuce, topped with Chipotle mayo sauce.

“Our new line of crispy sandwiches takes us to a whole new level of creativity.”

Classic crispy chicken sandwich is made using citrus marinated chicken breast, fresh-sliced tomato, romaine lettuce and peppadew sauce.

Crispy chipotle chicken sandwich contains citrus marinated chicken breast, fresh-sliced tomato, and romaine lettuce and is topped with Chipotle mayo sauce.

Pollo Tropical president Danny Meisenheimer said: “Over the past year, we have introduced new menu items and quality enhancements as part of our strategic brand renewal plan.

“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.”

Pollo Tropical is a subsidiary of Fiesta Restaurant Group and offers a range of menu items including chicken and mojo roast pork, along with sides such as rice, beans and corn casserole.

Established in 1988, the company currently owns and operates more than 140 locations across Florida, Atlanta and Georgia.
