Dallas-based Fiesta Restaurant Group Inc. is shuttering several company-owned Pollo Tropical and Taco Cabana restaurants as part of a renewal plan prior to a relaunch of both brands.
Fiesta Restaurant Group said it plans to close 30 Pollo Tropical restaurants in North Texas, Austin and Nashville. Impacted employees will be offered jobs at nearby Fiesta restaurants, according to a company news release.
As part of the renewal plan, the company intends to relaunch the Pollo Tropical brand in September of this year and to relaunch the Taco Cabana brand late in the year once results of the plan are clear, the company said.
Up to five of closed restaurants may be rebranded as Taco Cabana restaurants, according to the news release.
