Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) – Just in time to shore up New Year's resolutions to eat healthy, Pollo Campero today introduced a menu of three flavorful, complete meals with 505 or fewer calories. The promotion will be in stores beginning Jan. 18.
"We're taking healthy eating a big step forward by offering our customers three fast, complete, low-calorie meals," said Roberto Denegri, Campero USA president and chief operating officer. "These meals feature our signature Latin chicken, plus our unique and delicious sides. They may be low in calories, but they are full of the same fantastic ingredients and Campero flavor our customers have always enjoyed."
Pollo Campero's new 505-calorie meals include:
When trying to eat healthy, consumers have few – if any – choices at their favorite quick-service restaurants. This leaves them eating the same low-calories meal day after day, which makes it harder to stick with a healthy diet.
"We hope to support our customers' long-term diet plans by giving them a wide variety of healthy, affordable options that still feature our famous Latin flavor," Denegri said.
Long considered a Latin American treasure, Pollo Campero launched its first restaurant in the United States in 2002. For years prior to that, visitors to Latin America were known to stuff their carry-on luggage with Campero chicken for the flight home. As stores have opened in new cities like Los Angeles and Boston, Pollo Campero fans have lined up for hours to experience their first taste of Latin chicken on U.S. soil.
Unlike other fast food chicken restaurants, Pollo Campero's food is freshly prepared each day. Chicken is marinated, sending the distinctive Campero flavor all the way to the bone. 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, 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 Latin drinks including horchata and tamarindo.
The world's largest Latin chicken restaurant chain, Pollo Campero offers its customers "Flavor You Can't Campero." The company serves more than 85 million customers each year at more than 300 restaurants in 12 countries around the globe. This includes more than 50 locations already open in the United States, with additional stores slated for this year.
