Parents tend to get the short end of the stick when it comes to culinary pursuits, whether they're dining at home or out and about. They suffer the stink-eye from diners and servers alike at sit-down restaurants when they've got their brood in tow. More often than not, "dinner" consists of the cold, slightly gnawed-on scraps of chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese left on a fussy toddler's plate.
Pollo Tropical -- which never misses a chance to capitalize on a golden marketing opportunity -- recognizes this dynamic. They'll hand out free and discounted food in honor of frazzled parents everywhere this Sunday.
In recognition of National Parents' Day -- July 22 -- Pollo Tropical customers who text "PARENT" to 52198 will get $2 off any "Create Your Own Family Meal" at any company-owned Pollo Tropical in Florida and Georgia. In addition, the company will select one texter each hour to receive a free family meal, which comes with a whole grilled chicken, rolls, and whatever sides you choose, like beans and rice, yellow rice with veggies, and yuca with garlic sauce. The $2-off deal is good only on Sunday. Depending on your carrier and plan, text charges may apply.
