Pollo Campero in Cutler Bay is inviting public service employees to their restaurant at 18660 S. Dixie Hwy. every other Tuesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The goal is to invite representatives from the Fire Rescue Department, Police Department, and the Boating and Park Ranger Services to raise public safety awareness.
On Aug. 10 Pollo Campero is hosting a safety awareness seminar with the Miami-Dade Police Department and on Aug. 24 speakers from the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department will share safety tips with restaurant guests.
“Cutler Bay in Miami provides a wonderful opportunity for Pollo Campero to give back to our community,” said Belquis Rabi, local marketing specialist for Pollo Campero. “We hope to share great information with our customers and teach children about public safety in a fun environment.”
We welcome Pollo Campero devotees, as well as new customers getting their first taste of the restaurant’s legendary Latin chicken and international sides, including yuca fries and sweet plantains. Children will learn about stranger danger, boating and fishing safety, fire safety and neighborhood watch.
“Right now, Florida is one of our fastest-growing, most active markets in the United States,” said Roberto Denegri, Campero USA president and chief operating officer. “In addition to our three existing locations in Miami and Boynton Beach, later this year we will open a restaurant in Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort.”
Pollo Campero’s menu features distinctive fried and grilled chicken, as well as Latin sides and drinks. Food is freshly prepared each day, including handchopped salsas. Fried chicken is handbreaded in seasoned flour and slowly pressure-cooked without trans-fats.
Grilled chicken features the taste of lime and orange juices, red bell peppers, and a proprietary blend of Latin herbs and spices.
Side dishes include a mix of Latin and traditional American dishes, including Campero beans, Campero rice, black beans and white rice, yuca fries, sweet plantains, cole slaw, French fries and mashed potatoes. Customers can choose from soft drinks, iced tea or specialty drinks including horchata and tamarindo.
Pollo Campero was founded in Guatemala in 1971. The family-owned operation quickly grew into a Latin American treasure. Visitors to Guatemala were even known to load their carry-on luggage with Pollo Campero chicken for their return flights home. In 2002, Pollo Campero launched its first restaurant in the United States. When stores have opened in new cities across America, Pollo Campero fans have lined up for hours to experience their first taste of Latin chicken on U.S. soil.
