Caribbean cuisine will be a bit harder to find in north Fulton County.
Pollo Tropical — a Florida-based restaurant chain with a menu highlighted by spicy chicken, calypso beef and tostones — closed 30 of its restaurants on Monday, including three in the metro Atlanta area.
Glen Orr, a spokesperson for Pollo Tropical, did not say how many jobs would be affected by the closing of these three locations, but a release from Fiesta Restaurant Group said, “Where possible, employees impacted by restaurant closures will be offered positions at nearby restaurants.”
Here’s where Pollo Tropical once existed near Atlanta:
- Market Place Boulevard in Cumming
- 5805 State Bridge Road in Johns Creek
- 10900 Haynes Bridge Road in Alpharetta
Pollo Tropical also closed restaurants in Dallas, Austin and Nashville. There are still 13 Pollo Tropical restaurants in metro Atlanta.
