The Cuban Sandwich Goes Big Time as Pollo Tropical launches its new line of Cuban Pressed Sandwiches


MIAMI, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- South Florida is synonymous with Cuban food and the Cuban sandwich is the iconic go-to for locals and tourists alike. Pollo Tropical®, the beloved Floridian restaurant chain, is delving further into its Latin roots to bring not just the Cuban Sandwich, but an entire line of Cuban Pressed Sandwiches, to the larger Florida area.

Launching today, Pollo Tropical® will be adding a line of 5 Cuban Pressed Sandwiches to its roster of wildly popular Latin-inspired menu items. These include the Original Cuban, the Crispy Chicken Cuban, the Grilled Chicken Cuban, El Clásico and a Pan con Lechón (Mojo Roast Pork). Staying true to Pollo Tropical's commitment to quality ingredients at friendly price points, this new line continues to offer guests the authentic cuisine they love in a brand new way.

"Our new line of Cuban Pressed Sandwiches is the perfect addition to our menu, and we are incredibly excited to bring them to our fans all across Florida," said Hope Diaz, Chief Marketing Officer of Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc., the parent company of Pollo Tropical. "We're proud to be the ones to bring Cuban sandwiches, usually offered only at local restaurants and cafeterias, to a bigger stage. We're celebrating this iconic sandwich in a huge way and know our fans will love this new line of sandwiches as much as we do."

Pollo Tropical's entire line of Cuban Pressed Sandwiches is offered conveniently through mobile order pick-up, curbside, delivery and of course via drive-thru, their modern-day take on the traditional ventanitas frequented by locals.
