Do you speak Spanish?
If no, then you are probably not aware that Pollo Tropical means “Tropical Chicken” in English.
I’m glad they named the store in Spanish, since Tropical Chicken doesn’t have quite the same ring as Pollo Tropical.
The Spanish name was genius and something any aspiring entrepreneur should take note of when naming their product:
Everything sounds better in Spanish, or almost any language other than English. Remember that when you’re deciding on a name for your product or service.
Pollo Tropical is a Carribbean food restaurant with its base in Miami, Florida. It was founded only recently in 1988.
Larry and Stuart Harris, two brothers with no cooking backgrounds founded the chain.
Just goes to show you don’t need a degree or even experience to be successful in a field as long as you are willing to put in the work.
Larry, with his way less than qualified, non-chef background, wouldn’t have been touched or hired by any restaurant if he had tried to get a job as a chef.
Instead he used his own ingenuity to start his own multi-million dollar empire.
He wanted to start a restaurant, so he looked up Latin American cookbooks and experimented using the grill in their backyard until he was satisfied with the recipe for the original Pollo Tropical chicken.
Safe to say we’re all happy he had that grill and those cookbooks.
Today Pollo Tropical has grown to 140 locations in Florida and Georgia.
It also has five locations within colleges, and you can find it throughout the Carribbean, Central America, South America and Puerto Rico in its 32 international locations.
One fun way the restaurant has raised awareness for charity as well as $10,000 for United Way, was through a conga line in Miami, which made drivers angry until they realized it was for a good cause.
Another fun publicity stunt is they allow people to get married there, specifically opening their doors to marriage last Valentine’s day.
I sure hope all the couples take advantage of the www.pollolistens.com survey after their wedding!
