As part of the franchise application process, Pollo Tropical provides you with introductory documents that provide information about the company's international franchise program. As of 2015, Poll Tropical's franchise opportunities exist in countries outside of the United States. You must at least $5 million and have experience in high-volume or multi-unit restaurants positions, such as in the catering industry or hotel industry. The company desires at least five years of experience in this field.

After meeting the requirements, sign the confidentiality agreement and return. Fill out the Development Agreement and Franchise Agreement and send these documents back to the company. Prepare for a potential visit from the franchising head for operations observation and market conditions evaluation. Provide the required financial information and review the proposed Development Agreement term sheet.

After completing these steps, you get an invitation to an interview with the Pollo Tropical executives at the company headquarters. If the franchise approval team approves your application, sign and return the final Development Agreement document for your official status as a Pollo Tropical franchisee.
