Donate an old phone, get a free wrap

Donate an old cell phone and get a free shrimp or chicken quesadilla wrap on Wednesday, March 14, from 10:30 a.m. until closing at all company-owned Florida Pollo Tropical restaurants.

There is no limit on the number of phones customers can donate or the number of wraps they can receive – each phone is good for a free wrap.  The phones do not have to be in working order. They simply need to have a battery.  All makes and models are accepted.

The program is called “Handhelds for Handhelds” and was created by Pollo Tropical to help Women In Distress collect cell phones that they refurbish so those in distress may dial “911” to receive assistance. Mobile phones that cannot be refurbished are recycled for parts to help fund Women in Distress programs and services. 

The hot pressed wraps feature a choice of shrimp or chicken with melted cheddar jack cheese, chopped tomatoes, and chipotle dressing - all on an 8.5-inch flatbread that is finished on the grill press.
