ADDISON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc.® (Nasdaq: FRGI), parent company to the Pollo Tropical, Taco Cabana and Cabana Grill™ restaurant brands, will consolidate all its food distribution with Performance Food Group.
The partnership with PFG, which has been serving Pollo Tropical restaurants for more than eight years, will allow the growing brands to share a national distribution system and freight consolidation, creating money-saving and quality-enhancing efficiencies.
“PFG has been an excellent partner for Pollo Tropical as we’ve expanded inside and outside of Florida. Now that we are growing in Texas with Pollo, and at the same time building our elevated Taco Cabana concept in the Southeast with Cabana Grill, centralized distribution is key,” said Fiesta Vice President of Supply Chain Management Joe Brink. “This move further positions us for long-term growth.”
Fiesta brands are known for serving fresh, handmade sauces, salsa, sides and entrees that are created in each restaurant daily. Consistent, quicker deliveries of high-quality, fresh produce, beans, rice and other ingredients to Fiesta’s more than 300 total restaurants in Florida, Texas, Georgia and Tennessee is a major factor as the company expands its reach into new markets and grows in existing markets.
“Joe Brink continues to deliver strategic wins that help us serve the freshest foods while we continue to grow our system,” said Fiesta President and CEO Tim Taft. “This consolidation is further evidence of the significant role supply chain plays within Fiesta Restaurant Group.”
