Pollo Tropical has opened its 32nd internationally franchised location, and its second in Panama City, Panama.
The two-level restaurant is located in a new entertainment and dining complex in the Multi-Plaza shopping center. Other international brands that have also established locations in Panama City's Multi-Plaza include Hugo Boss, Coach, Jimmy Choo, Juicy Couture, Louis Vuitton and more.
This is the second restaurant of a five-restaurant development agreement between Pollo Tropical and El Machetazo of Panama. The first Pollo Tropical in Panama opened in May 2012, at the Albrook Shopping Center. This new restaurant reflects the initiatives that Pollo Tropical is implementing in its expansion domestically, such as enhanced service with upgraded plates and glassware, in addition to its flame-grilled marinated chicken, roast pork, guava barbecue ribs and made-from-scratch side dishes.
"We have worked closely with our franchise partner in Panama, El Machetazo, to ensure that the Pollo Tropical brand will resonate well with new customers, as well as loyal customers, seeking a fresh and flavorful alternative," said Marc Mushkin, senior vice president of International Development for Pollo Tropical.
Two additional units are currently under construction in Panama's capital.
