Pollo Tropical Launches New Vegan Menu Featuring Beyond Beef

The Florida-based fast-casual franchise, Pollo Tropical®, has launched a vegan menu featuring Beyond Beef. The new items include the Vegan Tropichop rice bowl and the Vegan Wrap.

Pollo Tropical partnered with Beyond Meat to develop plant-based options that offer the same unique flavors as the meat-based menu items that it has provided for over 30 years. Both options are currently available in restaurants, online pick-up, and delivery using Pollo Tropical’s app.
