Overview
At Pollo Tropical ®, we place great pride in our people. We're proud they value hard-work, high standards, and really care for one another. It's true, we're a culturally diverse family who respects one another's differences, grows together, and has a zest for life.
Our people are loyal, responsible, results-driven, and growth-oriented. We operate some of the highest volume restaurants in the quick-casual segment. And, we only do it during lunch and dinner - so no "crack of dawn" mornings or "graveyard shifts" to manage. We cook our food from scratch, make our own sauces, and prepare our chicken on an open-flamed grill. We deliver food to our guests in an inviting and fun environment, staying true to our message that "life truly is better under the palm."
We aren't looking for any restaurant manager. We're looking for business-minded leaders who want to earn, learn, and grow with us as they help us grow. We are building 25-35 restaurants a year in exciting markets like Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Nashville, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando, and all of South Florida where we began over 26 years ago in Miami. We added over 1,500 employees and hired over 150 managers last year, and are quickly on our way to outpace that in 2015 and the years to follow.
Through our Pollo Tropical University (PTU), our managers and employees receive top-notch training on all aspects of the operations, while developing their leadership and business skills. As part of our family, you will receive a comprehensive benefits package including medical, dental, 401k, quarterly bonuses, tuition reimbursement, meal discounts and a host of other employee rewards and services.
When you join our publicly traded company, you will be a part of the excitement that is known as Fiesta Restaurant Group ® (frgi.com). We specialize in the operation of fast-casual, ethnic restaurant brands that offer distinct flavors with a broad appeal at a compelling value. We currently own and operate the Taco Cabana and Pollo Tropical brands, with a total of 329 restaurants in the southern United States, and franchise the Pollo Tropical brand in the Caribbean, Central America, and South America.
