DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fiesta Restaurant Group (NASDAQ: FRGI), parent company of Pollo Tropical® and sister brand Taco Cabana® restaurants, is announcing its partnership with leading on-demand platform DoorDash to bring door-to-door delivery to both of its widely-popular restaurant concepts. The announcement will position Pollo Tropical and Taco Cabana to further excel in off-premise sales by combining the flavor of each brand’s unique menu with the convenience of delivery.
Pollo Tropical delivery through DoorDash is available now at all 139 company-owned locations throughout the Pollo system. Taco Cabana delivery through DoorDash will be available at all 162 company-owned locations in the coming weeks. Pollo Tropical is celebrating the launch of the partnership by offering guests $0 delivery fees on orders of $10 or more from March 4th through March 10th*. Guests will also be able to order delivery online at www.PolloTropical.com and www.TacoCabana.com. Within the DoorDash platform at www.DoorDash.com or via the DoorDash mobile app, all deliveries can be tracked by the guest in real time.
DoorDash and Fiesta Restaurant Group have been working together to integrate the ordering and delivery process fully into both Fiesta brands’ systems to provide operational excellence and a top-notch guest experience. Additionally, the DoorDash platform utilizes a proprietary system involving each restaurant location’s radius so that deliveries are as fast and efficient as possible. All DoorDash drivers use thermal bags on all items to ensure quality.
